September is Basic Education and Literacy Month!
Rotary supports activities and training to improve education for all children and literacy for children and adults...
The Rotary Foundation enables Rotarian's to ensure that all people have sustainable access to basic education and literacy by:
DG Mike's September Newsletter 
September is basic education and literacy month in Rotary. Following are some interesting statistics retrieved from Wikipedia. The world literacy rate for all males is 90% whereas for females the rate is 82.7%. Developed nations have an overall rate of 99.2%, with south and west Asia having 70.2% and sub-Saharan Africa at 64.0%. These statistics are dated 2016 but we can see that, in keeping with President Shekhar’s emphasis on improving the lives of girls and women, we need to increase access to education for females worldwide, especially in Africa.

Why is Facilitated Club Visioning important? 
South Tyler President, Beth Blaisdell said,  “Our club visioning workshop helped us collaborate as a team to define our direction and goals for the next several years.  The visioning team of 15 reported to our club members at our weekly meeting, sharing our vision results.  The enthusiasm and commitment from our club has South Tyler Rotary on a very positive path for community service.”
According to District 5830 Visioning Chair, Sam Scoggins,  there are three measures of success for club's that complete a Vision.   (Click on read more for details)
