My name is Jeff Harris and I am a member of the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor, Washington.
Our club has funded Rotary District Grants for Raspberry Pi and Rachel projects in Northwest Guatemala since 2015. In 2015 we funded 3 schools; 2016 - 6 schools; 2017 - 3 schools; and in 2017 - 8 schools in an evaluation of Rachel with World Possible/Guatemala and a university in Guatemala City.
In July of this year we received approval by Rotary International of a Global Grant by 3 nations, 8 Rotary Clubs for a total of $135,000 which will, over the next 3 years, install and train teachers in nearly 55 schools serving 10,000 students. A Rotary club in Ontario, Canada is serving as the lead in this Global Grant. We will be happy to share our application and observations.
While World Possibles Rachel will not solve all problems faced by people in the Third World, we are convinced that it will give the children an opportunity for a better future. World Possible has been an in-creditable partner in our efforts.
