September: Basic Education & Literacy Month
More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate - that's 17% of the world's adult population.
Rotary's goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy. We support education for all children and literacy for children and adults.
