Community: Support India Literacy Project for Golden Gate Relay May 5-6, 2018

We are proud to have such active and engaged members in our dental family and want to help spread the word about teams and projects that are making a positive impact in the world.  We strive to not only  be a dental home, but a neighbourhood hub of community and positivity.  

 The India Literacy Project has teamed up with Organs R Us to walk 125 miles from Marin to Santa Cruz in the GOLDEN GATE RELAY on May 5-6th, 2018

Though the literacy rate in India has been ticking up since the ’80’s it is still home to the largest population of illiterate adults in the world – 287 million! The India Literacy Project team has been a very effective catalyst for over 25 years, unlocking the potential to move the literacy rate higher through innovative ways.
