For every $1,000 that a Rotary Club contributes to the Guatemala Literacy Project, it is entitled to name one Guatemala Literacy Fellow. This recognition program, similar to the Paul Harris Fellow program, recognizes individuals who have provided tangible and significant assistance in the endeavor to bring the gift of literacy to children in Guatemala. These persons may be any individual of the club’s choosing, whether or not they are Rotarians.
