Update on New Generations
District Primary School Literacy Project. Rotarians and partners were able to support two projects for a small donation of $2. We were able to hand over 50 books to one primary school in each AG Group these books were secured from the donations. School recipients in our area were: Tarrawanna Public School and Warilla Public School
Money raised out of this project gave us enough funds to support Books in Homes Project to support the 10 Indigenous students in the small town of Bonya (Ortippa Thurra), NT (320klms north east of Alice Springs) to receive reading books for a year, along with the school having around 80 books to add to their school library. Great outcome both Locally and Nationally!!!
