Our Club has been awarded a Rotary District Grant as the lead Club for a joint project of Rotary Clubs in our immediate area. This grant will provide laptop computers for school classroom use at Escuela 21 Middle School in Puerto Penasco, Mexico. This grant for $10,800 will purchase and install laptop computers for student studies in mathematics, science, history, and Spanish, as well as focused classes devoted to specific skills or trades such as information technology.  By providing laptops to the students at Escuela 21, they will be able to put practical use to what they are learning just in theory at this point.  The curriculum that the teachers are given can actually be used once they have the computers necessary to effectuate their lessons.  The school serves 520 students ages 13- 17 from low-income families in the area.
This project is a cooperative effort of the Rotary Clubs of Fremont, Fremont Morning, FUN Sunset, Mission San Jose, Newark and Niles/Fremont in California, the Rotary Club of Puerto Penasco in Mexico and Pro Amigos humanitarian organization.
