Terry Umlach of the Rotary Club of the Sunshine Coast has just returned from one of his regular visits to Kenya, and will give us an update on the Rotary supported education projects he is leading.  The latest developments involve supplying computer equipment, teacher training and provision of solar lights so that students can study at home where there is no mains electricity.  Rotary has also made possible the recent trip by 8 experienced IT teachers from BC to Kenya to carry out intensive training in the use of IT in education.

This is an extremely successful longstanding project, which has earned both Rotary Global Grants and Government of Canada grants.  We can learn from Terry's experience as we embark on our education project in Taweni, South Africa.

We have supported these projects financially over several years, and it will be good to hear how the money is being spent.
