Inspiring Children, Supporting Educators
Rotary all over the world works to support education
More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. That’s 17 percent of the world’s adult population.
Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.
We support education for all children and literacy for children and adults.
Supporting Education in Maidenhead
Our club runs a number of local initiatives, aimed at inspiring children and encouraging learning.
We organised and fund this Primary School Maths competition which is run in conjunction with the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and leading maths teachers from schools in the borough.
Children from local Primary Schools battle it out, solving 4 challenging problems, to become the coveted 'Mathmagicians'
Young Writer's Competition
This annual competition encourages young authors from local schools to be creative by producing an essay which they get to read at the event held at the Holiday Inn Maidenhead. A Writer's Workshop featuring published authors support the event and give aspiring young authors the opportunity to learn how fun words can be and feed their imagination.
We organise volunteers who go into local Primary Schools for an hour each week to listen to children read to help them to improve their literacy.
