For the past six years, Cayucos Rotary has supported PACE Universal by sponsoring the cost of educating at least two-three girls each year. This is one of our favorite international projects, and our club's delight to support Past District Governor Deepa Biwas' girls school at PACE Universal in Piyali, India.

Education & literacy, as Rotarians know, is one of the seven areas of focus for Rotary.  Cayucan Rotarians believe education is the key to helping these youths lay the foundation to help them become more self-sufficient and more successful in life.

Our members loved to receive letters from the girls. This year, we heard from Supriya Mondal aged 7 years old, Tandrani Roy aged 13 years old and Shampa Roy aged 17 years. Each shared how they had been coping during Covid. Supriya said that if  she could be a photographer for a day, she would take many pictures of the sky.  Tandrani had engaged in indoor activities like doing quizzes and drawing, while Shampa made masks to distribute to children.

Our club will continue to support the education of these girls.  For more info about PACE Universal, visit :
