“Computers for Progress” Project

There are about 2,000 students in the three middle schools we work with, and only one working computer! Imagine -– in this day and age of ever-increasing connectivity, our middle school students do not have access to the basic tools of technology – computers!

The schools have computer labs, but no computers

To address this need, the Progreso Apoyo Program is pleased to announce a partnership with the Merida English Rotary Club to purchase computers for each of the three middle schools in Progreso as part of the “100 for 100” funding initiative. The initiative celebrates 100 years of Rotary Club’s involvement in Mexico by sponsoring 100 projects throughout the country.

The Merida English Rotary Club has selected our project “Computers for Progress” as one of the projects they will submit for consideration. We will learn whether or not this project will receive funding sometime mid-2020.  One of the local newspapers did a nice write-up of our site visits to one of the schools — click here to read this article .
