THE Rotaract Club of Verulam donated school supplies and books to Jhugroo Primary School in support of basic education and Literacy Month, which is celebrated in September.

The school is in the process of refurbishing the library and is in need of educational material. President of the club Bhavisthra Ramlagan said: “More than 17% of the world’s population is illiterate. Empowering a child with a book is the biggest gift one can give.”

The club appeals to members of the community who are willing to donate, to contact the principal of the school. — Supplied.
