Poster Child for Literacy

The US Peace Corps volunteers in South Africa are a determined lot of people. I am blessed to be able to work along side them for even a brief time as I train for the Souns program. A Global Grant originating in Rotary Clubs, then supported by Rotary Districts, and in turn by The Rotary Foundation provides Souns literacy materials to Peace Corps volunteers who see the program as a benefit to their communities in South Africa. What an impact one Peace Corps volunteer can have. This beautiful, determined smile is going to open doors to reading and writing for children. When a child can read, he or she can have hope. When there is hope, we are a little closer to peace. The volunteers will teach the teachers who teach the children. When they leave their site, they will leave a legacy. These Peace Corps volunteers bring treasure chests of hopes and possibilites to their communities, and they retun home with at least as much as they leave behind.

Thank you, PCV’s! You are the best!

Thank you Rotary Club of Peachtree City in District 6900 (USA), Rotary Club of Pretoria East in District 9400 (RSA), and The Rotary Foundation for all that is being done with this project. The Global Grant provides materials only. All training is provided by Rotarian volunteers.
