Reach Foundation

About REACH

The Rotherglen Educating for Advocacy and Creating Hope (REACH) Foundation is an exciting initiative for the Rotherglen community. At the heart of its conception is the desire to foster an awareness within our students of their role as citizens of the world. The Foundation provides a means for our students, parents and teachers to shape and give direction to our charitable initiatives beginning within our own community and reaching further abroad.

Our goal is to encourage children to be active citizens by encouraging a sense of gratitude, charity, citizenship, responsibility, leadership and empowerment. The REACH Foundation will teach each of our students that even as young people, they can make a difference.
