The Rotary Club of Chula Vista respectfully requests matching funds of $500 for the literacy grant in support of the Tijuana, Mexico Literacy Project.
The Rotary Club of Chula Vista's International Projects Committee, in partnership with the Tijuana Rotary Club, will provide books and educational resources for a school serving a disproportionate share of underprivileged children in Tijuana, Mexico. The Club will provide at least 100 children's books selected by the school to be available to children in the equivalent of grades K-3, attending the school which serves low-income students. Beyond books, the Chula Vista Rotary Club may also purchase additional educational resources, if the budget allows.
This program has been very well-received by Rotarians in Tijuana and by Tijuana community leaders.
Project Timeline: Spring/Summer 2019
Number of Rotarians Involved: 4-6 from Chula Vista Rotary Club and support from the Rotary Club of Tijuana.
