The Cincinnati Eastside Rotary is sponsoring two schoolchildren in Guatemala as part of the Cooperative for Education’s Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP).  Cooperative for Education partners with Rotary International to provide desperately needed textbooks, reading materials, and computer centers to underprivileged children in one of the most impoverished areas of the world.  Cincinnati Eastside Rotary joins more than 440 Rotary clubs globally supporting this initiative.

 

“The Guatemala Literacy Project further supports our club’s focus on youth,” said Cincinnati Eastside Rotary President Michelle Edwards.  “We’re pleased that Cooperative for Education has resources on the ground in Guatemala that will help ensure these funds are used effectively.”

 

Cincinnati Eastside Rotary’s sponsorship of two students will be used to purchase textbooks, library materials and/or computers. The entire amount of the sponsorship will be used to support the students.  Administrative costs are absorbed by Cooperative for Education.

About Our Club

The Rotary Club of Cincinnati-Eastside was formed April 5, 2013 and it's 40 members enjoy fellowship, service and education each Wednesday at a luncheon meeting at Ivy Hills Country Club.  Prospective members are always welcome and each week more people are joining the "ground floor" of this new and vibrant Club.

The members represent a wide range of business, non-profit and government leaders.
