Your Gift Will Change
the Future for Guatemalan Children

The Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) is a network of individual Rotarians, Rotary clubs and districts, and the nonprofit organization Cooperative for Education (CoEd) with a common interest in improving education for underserved students in Guatemala. It is one of the largest grassroots, multi-club, multi-district projects in Rotary, with over 500 participating clubs throughout its 20-year history.
The Rotary Club of North Bay is one of several clubs in Rotary District 7010 that has been supporting the project since about 2010 – through contributions and participation on the annual GLP tours.
