Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Caldwell, Idaho

Total Budget: $3,500

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: Provide 1,400 second graders in the Caldwell School District and the surrounding districts with their own chapter book.


Caldwell Rotary has distributed more than 1,400 age appropriate books to students. Each book has a Rotary decal with a place for the student to put their own name in the book. The project funds would be used to purchase the books and the labels for the books. The cost per child is roughly $2.85. Many of the children in our area are from underprivileged homes and this may be the very first book that they may have as their very own. Young children need to become excited about reading at an early age to motivate them to want to read more which improves their chances to succeed in learning and in school. We have teachers individually select a book for each student in their classes with their interests in mind so the book is meaningful and exciting to them. This project takes place during the school year.

Many fellow Rotarian club members sign up to help distribute the books and receive attendance "make-ups" for helping. This whole process strengthens our club's service commitment through purpose, gets Rotary's name out there, and promotes literacy through the joy of reading at an early age. It also highlight Rotary in our community.
