Guest Speaker: DARREN LEAVER
on The Robin Carlson Children’s Language Program
Darren will discuss the Robin Carlson Children’s Language Program (RCCLP.org), which provides free after-school English-language lessons to over 500 Balinese children. They provide books, pens, instructor supplies as well as a Balinese teacher, and invite travelers to come visit for a day to help the children hear native speakers. The program is currently funded by Darren and his wife but has recently received some small funding from private donors. Darren would like to explore a link with local Bali Rotary to a RC in the Glendale-Pasadena area of California for additional fundraising.
