This projects provides textbooks to rural middle schools which currently have no textbooks. The project is sustain through a rental component. The rental money goes into a bank account and money is withdrawn after five years to replace the textbooks at that school. Rotarians go to Guatemala in February of each year to deliver textbooks to new schools entering the project. Day to day management is done by our non-profit partner, Cooperative for Educational Development. Funds are donated by Rotary Clubs in the US, Canada and Guatemala. The grant is used to buy the textbooks in Guatemala,

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
