Guatemala Literacy Project

The Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) is a network of individual Rotarians, Rotary clubs and districts, and the nonprofit organization Cooperative for Education (CoEd) with a common interest in improving education for underserved students in Guatemala. It is one of the largest grassroots, multi-club, multi-district projects in Rotary, with over 500 participating clubs throughout its 20-year history. 184 clubs, 21 districts, and a $114,000 match from the government of Canada contributed to this Global Grant, which will provide the gift of literacy, education, and training to more than 8,000 children and teachers in rural Guatemala. The Rotary club of Stratford supported this project with a $250 donation.
