In March 2010 The Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy will celebrate its 10th anniversary of introducing children to the wonderful world of books and helping prepare them for school. The Ferst Foundation (FFCL) began in 1999 in Morgan County, Georgia, modeling its program on the Imagination Library initiative begun by musician and philanthropist Dolly Parton in Tennessee. Endorsed by Rotary International the program sends age-appropriate books directly to the home of each registered child until the age of five. The FFCL strives to improve early learning opportunities for every Georgia child regardless of income, race, religion, or gender with the philosophy that any child who cannot read is at-risk. After 10 years, with more than 1.7 million books having been sent to over 90,000 Georgia pre-school children in 72 Counties, the Ferst Foundation is eager to celebrate the program success with our Rotary partners through our 1st annual GEORGIA ROTARY PRESIDENT BATTLE. FFCL is recruiting Rotary Presidents from across Georgia to participate in this friendly competition highlighting one of the easiest ways to improve a childs school preparedness -- reading to him or her daily.
