It is November and the first half of this Rotary year has almost finished. Of course, especially with young people who have little basic education or literacy skills their productive time is going too fast. We have the experience and the networks to change that.

Please share this Newsletter with your friends, the members of your Rotary club and even people in your community who are not members of Rotary. There are ideas here for everyone.

Indeed here is a heart-warming story of a retired man (not a Rotarian) who visits his local school to help young people. Please read it - volunteer.

The newsletter this time is extensive with ideas that could be applied just about anywhere in the world - -  you will find it here - LitRAG Newsletter.

We would really like to know what you are doing or people around you are doing in the general area of basic education and literacy growth. Your ideas shared here could help someone in another part of this wonderful world. 

All the best - - - In Rotary Service.
