Worldwide, 67 million children have no access to education, and more than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Our members support educational projects that provide technology, teacher training, vocational training teams, student meal programs, and low-cost textbooks to communities. Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.

Internationally, District 7010 is a proud supporter of the Guatemalan Literacy Project, a partnership between Rotary and CoEd to promote literacy in Guatemala, the R.E.L.A.Y. Project in Africa (Rotarians Enhancing Learning of African Youth) and the Rotarian School in the province of Svay Rieng, Cambodia. Locally, many clubs promote education and literacy in their own communities through financial sponsorship.
