    The Rotary Club of Dryden raised $36,000 through its Second Annual Xmas Promotion for schools in the urban slums of Bangladesh. These funds support our sponsored school, the Durbar-Shaikat Rotary Mothers’ School, and other similar schools in Bangladesh. Each school teaches 25 mothers in the morning, each of whom teaches five neighbourhood children at their home in the afternoon. Rotary support has amazing impact and reach. The Xmas promotion pays for a total of 4.5 Amarok schools. That’s enough to cover the basic education costs for 113 mothers to teach 563 children for the year. Every one of these children are the first in their families to learn how to read and write. Most will go on to graduate from high school. All get jobs and many complete college or university degrees.
