Rotaract club seeks books for overseas project
This is not a Rotary club story as such, but as will be seen by reading below, our only Rotaract club in 1050 is seeking donations of books for a very worthwhile project.
For the last couple of years or so, Rotaract Manchester International has been organizing a book collection, the goal being to raise books and donate them to different schools, universities or libraries in both Bulgaria and Romania.
English is the most spoken foreign language in Bulgaria and Romania, being taught from primarily school until higher education.
The main reason for this initiating this project is to improve the availability of English language material in schools and universities in both Romania and Bulgaria and create new sources of information.
Rotaract Manchester International currently work with a number of partner clubs based in both Romania and Bulgaria. Including: Shumen, Ruse, Varna, Bucharest and of course the location of the last REM, Timisoara.
Going forward and building on the success of the project, there are plans to extend
this project to other Rotary and Rotaract Clubs in these countries to actively promote the project and make people aware of the new resources available to them.
During the past year of the project over 6 pallets books were collected. Donations of unwanted books and resources are always welcomed.
