They would love to try to get 50 volunteers - the more the merrier.  The sign up link below includes a quick description of some of the tasks they need help with - they don’t have to be able to do them all.  There are some people that can’t lift heavy boxes but can help open bags and pack them as an example.

Bruce received the following information in an email from Joe Hunt, PDG, Rotary Club of Ohio Pathways (D-6600):

My name is Jim Hunt, and I am a past District Governor and member of the Rotary Club of Ohio Pathways (D-6600). Joe Berninger, founder of the Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP), and I are organizing Rotary service trips to Guatemala and we are looking for interested Rotarians.                                                 

The GLP is the largest grassroots, multi-club, multi-district effort in the Rotary world not directed by RI itself—the “gold standard” of Rotary projects, according to former RI President Ian Riseley. Over 600 Rotary clubs from 8 countries have participated in the GLP since its inception in 1996. GLP Textbook, Computer, Teacher Training, and Youth Development programs currently serve more than 50,000 impoverished children.

We need Rotarians to join the following service trips to Guatemala:

  • July 21-27, 2019 
  • July 30-Aug 4, 2019
  • Nov 14-17, 2019
  • Feb 1-9, 2020
  • Feb 18-23, 2020
  • July 12-18, 2020
  • July 21-26, 2020

These trips offer a variety of experiences: Some are longer or shorter; some more “hands on”—and all of them give you the opportunity to be a meaningful part of Rotary’s work fighting poverty in Guatemala. Please visit the project’s website for more details.

Could you share this opportunity with members of your club?

If you have any questions, you can email me at

Yours in Rotary Service,

Jim Hunt, PDG
