Early Childhood Education & Literacy
 
Our Rotary Club promotes and supports early childhood education in greater Savannah.   this is done by providing financial support, volunteer time.  Individual members also add their own personal contributions. Members participate in the annual Rotary Read-in at Hesse and Isle of Hope Schools – all 45 classrooms. We provide Hess with funding for computers, and volunteer tutors and mentors. 
Members of our Club participates on Junior Achievement by volunteer their time to help young people acquired the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices. The Skidaway Island Rotary Club also supports childhood literacy through innovative programs like Parent University, Horizons Savannah, Loop It Up Savannah, L.O.V.E. Mentors, and Y-Readers Program (YMCA of Coastal).  For example with Parent University we are able to provide books to children participating in its programs. Every child who registers receives an age-appropriate book by mail every month, from the time of registration until his or her 5th birthday. The monthly mailing includes a parent newsletter filled with ideas about reading aloud and nurturing a child’s interest in reading, including craft projects and other fun activities.

International- Maternal & Child Health

Our Club, with Rotary District 6250 and Phalarope, is helping develop a maternal and child health health program in 20  rural communities in Guatemala. The goal is to reduce maternal mortality by creating a continuum of care between a health center and members of remote rural communities. We do this by using forming community traditional medical teams composed of health promoters and traditional Mayan midwives (comadronas).
