Burton RI President Governor’s Monthly Letter RI Dist. 3180 From The Governor's Desk DearFriendsinRotary, We know that March is designated as 'Literacy Month'. It is very relevant to know the importance of literacy in our area where the literacy rate is less than the world standards. I remember having read in an UNICEF literature that a girl child educated up to 7th Standard can take better care of her children in the areas of education and health care. It is very appropriate that we are launching the “Rotary South Asia Literacy Mission” – Rotary's pledge to eradicate illiteracy in South Asiaby2017. When it comes to the Foundation, though I am happy that more and more clubs are participating in the Foundation giving,Ishouldsaythatwearefarbehindthedistrictcommitments,IsincerelyappealtostrengthenTheRotaryFoundation throughyourgenerouscontributions.

2 RI President's Message - March 2014 Growing up in Duncan, Okla., USA, I took it for granted that everyone could read. In my own elementary school, not only were we expected to be reading by the age of seven or eight, we were expected to read upside down. We each took turns reading books to the entire class, and of course, if you want to read out loud to a group while you show them the pictures, you can't do it the right way up. All the way through elementary school, we did that every week, until it didn'treallymattertouswhichwaywewereholdingthebook. I never thought too much about that skill at the time. But a few months ago, on a visit to a Rotary project in Decatur, Ala., I walked into a first-grade classroom and was asked if I would read a book to a class of six-year-olds. Naturally, I was happyto oblige. I sat down, opened the book they had chosen, and started reading to about 30 little kids – upside down, just the way I did it back in secondgrade. In a sense, I was doing exactly what I'd learned to do more than half a century earlier. But as an adult, and especially as a Rotarian, I saw that experience in a different way. I was reading to a group of children who were well on their way to literacy themselves. We were sitting in their classroom, in a school where Rotarians came every week to read one-on-one with children who needed a little extra help. There wasn't any question that every child in that room would grow up to be a literate adult. And all of them took that completely for granted – as they took it for granted that adults would care enough to read them a book while showingthemthepictures,evenifthatmeantreadingupsidedown. We all know that millions of children all over the world aren't that lucky. That's why we make basic education and literacy a priority in our Rotary service. As we mark Literacy Month in Rotary, we remind ourselves what a gift we are giving when we help a childtoread–whetherit'sachildontheothersideoftheworldorrightinourownhometown.

WHO South-East Asia Region certified polio-free 80%oftheworld'spopulationisnowinpolio-freecertifiedregions New Delhi, 27 March: WHO South-East Asia Region, home to a quarter of the world's population, was certified polio-free today by an independent commission under the WHO certification process. This is the fourth of six WHO Regions to be certified, marking an important step towards global polio eradication. With this step, 80% of the world's population now lives in certified polio-free regions. “This is a momentous victory for the millions of health workers who have worked with governments, nongovernmental organizations, civil society and international partners to eradicate polio from the Region. It is a sign of what we can bequeath our childrenwhenweworktogether,”saidDrPoonamKhetrapalSingh,RegionalDirectorfortheWHOSouth-EastAsiaRegion. The Global effort to eradicate polio is spearheaded by Rotary International, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), WHO and UNICEF – with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. USAID has played a critical role, recognizing and raising the importance of mobile populations, cross-border coordination, communication and the need for more women vaccinators. In fact, working with local community organizations, women's groups and self-help groups, the messages have gone well beyond polio to address other immunizations, water and sanitation, breastfeeding and handwashing. Our steady financial support and technical leadershiphascontributedtothissuccess.
