What Is the GLP?

The Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) is a network of individual Rotarians, Rotary clubs and districts, and the nonprofit organization Cooperative for Education (CoEd) with a common interest in improving education for underserved students in Guatemala. It is one of the largest grassroots, multi-club, multi-district projects in Rotary, with over 500 participating clubs throughout its 20-year history.

How Does It Work?

The GLP works collaboratively by securing global grants from The Rotary Foundation and serving as ambassadors to promote and support projects and activities that enhance education in Guatemala. The GLP enables clubs, large and small, to have their funds multiplied up to 3.5 times on a global grant. 100% of GLP donations go directly to supporting the project, 0% to administration or fundraising.
