Our Club was recipient of a grant from The Rotary Foundation as part of a post-COVID response to provide computers to students who do not have access to technology or the internet in order to be able to continue their online studies.
The Ceiba Community Center works to foment a sense of belonging and involvement in this community of about 1,500 in habitants.
One of its signature programs is to provide support to adults so that they can complete primary, secondary or high school educations that have been interrupted by the need to leave school.
Their newest undertaking is a sewing workshop providing women with the necessary skills to be able to create clothing and other items for sale, adding to their household incomes and generating self-esteem and independence.
We are grateful to The Rotary Foundation and proud to be able to support this important initiative.
