Claudio Rodríguez Peña, from Valparaíso Rotary, referred to the remodeling and equipping of the science room of the establishment, “it required creativity and willingness on the part of our club since we had the main thing that was the desire to serve the community as Rotarians , but being a new club, we lacked the financial resources to carry out our project.
This did not stop us, since we found in this place people committed to the education of their students and showing that education is not only a matter of resources but of willingness to perform a task that dignifies people.
That is how we started hitting the doors of various organizations and people, who, appreciating the effort, gave us their help, which allowed us to move from a dream to the concrete reality of the different jobs already mentioned. “
