NAYEN "Memo" Book Project 2019

The idea of a book donation was first introduced in 2007, at the then USA-Canada Conference in Philadelphia, PA.
President Dan Bronson had the vision of many people making a small contribution of a single book, which would have a big impact on a local impoverished school. Each year the North American Youth Exchange Network (NAYEN) provides local school(s) with books and literacy supplies as a way of giving back to the city, in which the conference is held.
The NAYEN Book Project was renamed the “Memo” Book Project in memory of Rotarian Guillermo Lopez Portillo who passed away November 24, 2015. Guillermo was an avid supporter of NAYEN and Rotary Youth Exchange. Rotarian Guillermo Lopez Portillo was fondly known to most as “Memo".
The beneficiary of the 2020 conference is still under review.
