Using the expertise of a range of Rotary literacy activists, this session will concentrate on the development of tangible and useful local literacy projects for families and children. A special focus will be on programs for children from birth to 7 and how Rotary projects can assist in ensuring that all children have opportunities for good beginnings in their journey towards becoming functionally literate adults. Project initiation, subsequent development, and funding ideas will be highlighted.
