After the Rotary meeting on Wednesday, a delegation of 9 traveled to the community public school to inaugurate the computer lab for students and teachers.
Club Rotario has 3 partners in this project. The municipal Mayor’s engineering department provided the electrical work for the stations.
The second is a nonprofit “Computodos” that receives used computers from a Rotary Club in San Palo, CA. Computodos installs new electronics, larger drives and has license from Microsoft to provide its software. A complete work station from Computodos costs $250.
The third partner is West Bend Sunrise Rotary. Using funding tools provided by our Rotary District, Nancy wrote for a District Grant (DG) of $3,000. The Sunrise Club approved the application and then submitted it to the DG committee who approved it in July.

The next step for greater learning is to secure internet for the school and community.
Internet service is expensive and carriers hesitate to string copper wire only to have it disappear during the night
