Books for Kids Campaign
Rotary District 9810 together with Books in Homes, will provide books of choice to children living in the local communities of District 9810 in disadvantaged and low socio-economic circumstances, ensuring crucial early literacy engagement and the development of reading skills needed for lifelong achievement.
District 9810 was awarded $10,000 from Ansvar Insurance as part of their Community Education Program grants scheme. With the contributions received from Rotary and Rotaract Clubs, the District has now raised nearly $30,000 which would allow the equivalent of 1,500 primary school children to receive 2 books of choice to keep.
Given the changed circumstances and schooling format from the COVID-19 virus, the book giving ceremonies at the Primary Schools will now be occurring in Terms 1, 2021…assuming of course that all schools are back to normal by then. Clubs will be notified when dates with the schools have been confirmed.
