Young Rotary leaders take action to empower their community through education

By Med Yassine Boukhari, Officer of the Interact Club of Tunis Inner City, District 9010, Tunisia

During September, Rotary Basic Education and Literacy Month, the Interact Club of Tunis Inner City visited the Elderly House of Mannouba. Volunteer teachers accompanied us, and during our visit, we talked with the seniors and reminded them that they have no limits, that it isn’t too late, and that learning has no age. We taught them letters and step by step, they started to understand until some were able to write their own names. At the end of the day, our joy was great when we saw that the majority of them were enthusiastic and determined to study and learn more.
