September is Basic Education and Literacy Month for Rotary.  This is one of Rotary’s six areas of focus.  Reading and writing are critical for success in life – for gaining information, communicating, making agreements, and so forth.
 Enhancing Basic Education skills and Literacy are essential in reducing poverty, improving health, encouraging community and economic development, and promoting peace.  Improvements can reduce maternal death, improve childhood survivability, and reduce poverty.  They can also enable success in business or a profession.
