As school gets back in session, people are thinking about education because their children, grandchildren and neighbors are heading back to school. One of Rotary’s primary areas of focus is education. We work to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, to reduce gender disparity in education and increase adult literacy.
On your social media channels, I suggest you share this short video which talks about Rotary and education.
If time allows, I encourage you to invite teachers and administrators to visit one of your meetings and talk about education in your community.
Here’s a simple quote you can share: “When you teach somebody how to read, they have that for a lifetime. It ripples through the community, one by one.” 
Mark Wilson, Rotary Club Member 
And, if you’re really ambitious, create several tweets about these Rotary contributions to education,
Rotary members make amazing things happen, like:
Opening schools: In Afghanistan, Rotary members opened a girls’ school to break the cycle of poverty and social imbalance.
Teaching adults to read: Rotary members in the United States partnered with ProLiteracy Detroit to recruit and train tutors after a study showed that more than half of the local adult population was functionally illiterate.
New teaching methods: The SOUNS program in South Africa, Puerto Rico and the United States teaches educators how to improve literacy by teaching children to recognize letters by sounds instead of names.
Making schools healthy: Rotarians are providing clean, fresh water to every public school in Lebanon so students can be healthier and get a better education.
Enhancing educational systems: In Kenya, Rotary clubs are working with the Global Partnership for Education and local and national governments to advance life-long learning opportunities for poor and marginalized children. Learn more.
