Support Opportunity for Literacy Projects
September is Literacy Month, an opportunity for Rotarians to focus our awareness of literacy and education needs in our own communities and internationally.  Now, just in time for Literacy Month, BELRAG (Basic Education and Literacy Rotary Action Group) and Save the Children are pleased to announce a funding opportunity to support clubs’ innovative approaches to early childhood education in rural America
 
In June 2018, Rotary and Save the Children US embarked on a partnership, Together We Read, to increase literacy rates in rural communities through research-based early learning initiatives. The partnership unites Save the Childrens expertise in children’s early literacy programs with Rotarys expertise in connecting community leaders and driving public awareness – all with the aim of increasing educational outcomes for young children living in poverty.
 
This initiative offers Rotary Clubs an opportunity to apply to for funding of $5,000-$10,000 for community based initiatives that support Kindergarten readiness and early literacy. Up to ten projects will be funded. Proposals are due September 30, 2021.  See below RFP for criteria, project examples, and application form.
 
This is an excellent opportunity for Rotarians to receive support for their involvement in early education and literacy projects in their own communities. BELRAG is pleased to partner with Save the Children on this initiative and appreciates their generosity in funding these grants for US based Rotary literacy projects.
 
You are also invited to become involved with BELRAG.   Together, we will ensure that every child and adult has opportunity to lead productive, fulfilling lives as literate individuals.   If you would like more information about BELRAG, please visit the website  www.BELRAG.org

The Rotary Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test (of the things we think, say or do):
  1. Is it TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The Object of Rotary

The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and , in particular, to encourage and foster: 
  • First - the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • Second - High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by each Rotarian of his occupation as an opportunity to serve society; 
  • Third - The application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to his personal, business, and community life;
  • Fourth - The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
