Education

School in Chilasco, Baja Verapaz

 

This project is part of the “Ripple Effect Program” which is a cooperation of Canadian Rotary Clubs and the CRCID with local Rotary Clubs and strives to improve education. In this specific case, the RC of Winnipeg West was involved with the project which was coordinated by Clark McDonald of our club. The school in Chilascó in the department of Baja Verapaz received help for the construction of additional schoolrooms, additional teachers were hired and paid in order to teach more classes to more children, and a very significant number of computers was purchased and installed and the teachers and pupils were instructed in the use of them, thus improving their possibilities for a better future.
