The Guatemala Literacy Project
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.
Tustin Santa Ana Rotarians – Dick and Helen Anderson
Rotary Power Couple Dick and Helen Anderson will speak to us about the Guatemalan Literacy Project. With the involvement of 120 clubs and Rotary matching grants, $450,000.00 was contributed to the GLP. The program has been in existence for 20 years and 477 different clubs from 62 districts have participated.
By any measure, the GLP has been an incredible success. Dick and Helen Anderson have been to Guatemala delivering books and participating with the program on 12 separate occasions
