Computers for Progress Update

Computers for Progress Project Update:

by PDG Steve Hopper


Thanks to the Rotary Clubs and Rotarians who have contributed a total of $3,,630 toward our goal of $10,775 to provide a total of 35 computers to three middle schools in Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico. Our District has not completed a project of this type for some time.  We want to give each of our Rotary Clubs as well as individual Rotarians the opportunity to participate in this international project improve the educational opportunities for these underserved students. This project is one of 100 projects that are available to help our friends in Mexico celebrate the 100th anniversary of Rotary in Mexico in April, 2021. The size of these projects is too small to qualify for Global Grants that usually use District Designated Funds.


Club and Rotarian contributions can be sent to:

Bill Smith

Treasurer, District 6460 Foundation

Springfield, IL 62702-3351

The following is a YouTube link that provides an excellent overview of the Computers for Progress project:



The 100 in 100 projects are a part of the Heart 2 Heart (H2H) program in which our District has participated in numerous wide ranging Global Grants from Zones 30-31 to District 4170 in the Mexico City area.  For the Centennial Celebration Rotary Clubs throughout Mexico were invited to submit projects for consideration. Over 400 were initially submitted.


I hope that our District Clubs and Rotarians will join us in this outstanding project.
