Rotaract Club of Colombo

Multilingual Bookshelf

This international project was a proposal from the Rotarct Club of Lviv. The idea was to make a ‘Multilingual Bookshelf’ for children in orphanages and modest schools in the Lviv region in Ukraine. The main aim was to collect books from different parts of the world in different languages and put them in one place for the kids. RCC participated in this project therefore there are books in Sri Lankan languages (Sinhala, Tamil and English) represented in this international book section in Ukrainian school libraries. Over 6 Rotaract Clubs were involved in this international project. The books provided by RCC travelled the furthest to reach Ukraine amongst all participants, we were the only Asian club to participate in this project. Custom bookmark attached to each book we provided with our Rotaract Club name.
