World Computer Exchange has now shipped to our 50th developing country: Belize. The financial sponsor for this shipment is ECI Development,Ltd/Gran Pacifica Resort that is providing computers to centers and schools near their resorts including their Gran Baymen in Belize. In Nicaragua, they are providing the computers to the Roberto Clemente III Medical Clinic in Villa el Carmen Municipality. In Belize, Rotaract will deliver computers to several schools they work with on Ambergris Caye. Between Nicaragua and Belize, Gran Pacifica estimates that they will connect 800 youth per year with these computers. The Managua – Tiscapa Rotary Club is assisting with this shipment. Rotary Clubs have now assisted with WCE shipments to 14 developing countries. The volunteers at the WCE Chicago chapter refurbished and shipped these computers. This was WCE´s 241st shipment.
WCE has heard interest from 25 groups in Belize. The Mayor of Punta Gorda offered to serve as the consignee for our next shipment to Belize. WCE is looking for another corporate Sponsor to help fund our next shipment to Belize to reduce the match paid by our Partners.
Maybe we can do our second shipment to Belize soon since we now have a 20%-off sale.
We thank our WCE volunteer Development Officers for Belize: John McMurdy, Dimitry Cherney, and Julia Babcock.
