Warangal: The ‘Rotathon Walk’ organised under the aegis of Rotary International to spread awareness on the importance of 100 percent literacy in the country has evoked good response.
The event was jointly conducted by Rotary Club of Warangal, Rotary Club of Warangal Central and Rotary Club of Hanamkonda, which were part of Rotary 3150 District. Students, youth and public from different walks of life have walked from Warangal railway station to MGM Chowrastha besides the club members.
The Rotary District past governor Sharath Babu flagged off the walk. Speaking on the occasion, he said the Rotary Club, established 111 years ago has been working in more than 200 nations with 1.2 million persons as its members.
The organisation has played a key role in eradicating the menace of polio in India. Now it has been focusing basic education and literacy for all which were the two major requirements for the growth of the nation. In India 26 percent population was still illiterate, he pointed out.
It was aimed to support at least 2,000 girl students in the district annually through the ongoing literacy projects under TEACH Mission. Similarly efforts would be made to provide basic facilities like desks, safe drinking water, toilets, and library in identified schools such as social welfare and SSA Schools.
Rotary 3150 District assistant governors K Indrasena Reddy and E Rajaiah, district coordinators Vaidyanath and Rajagopal and others were present. They appealed the public to participate in the activities of the club to achieve total literacy.
