September 2019

September is Basic Education and Literacy Month 

Rotary International has designated September, 2019, as Basic Education and Literacy Month.  775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Rotary International has a range of programs to improve global education and literacy rates (https://www.rotary.org/en/our-causes/supporting-education).  What is your club doing to promote education and literacy initiatives in your community? During September, please post to the District's Facebook page examples of what your club is doing to promote basic education and literacy. 

PolioPlus

The elimination of polio from the world has had a tough year. Many parents in Pakistan have become vaccine deniers and are newly refusing to have their children vaccinated. This appears to be a response to the government's attempts to get better coverage with threats of jail for non-immunizers and increasing the age of the immunized to 10 years.

Join the Celebration of World Polio Day on October 24

Does your club have a plan to celebrate World Polio Day on October 24?  What will you do to highlight this important day - a watch party, a proclamation from the city government, a speaker at your weekly meeting?  The graphic below has some ideas on how you and your club can help celebrate World Polio Day 2019! Review those ideas and search for others. Work with the club to determine how they will celebrate the day, and then choose materials from the resource center and other links to help you.
