One of the projects the Comstock Park Rotary Club has supported for the past few years is the"Island Tech Center in Mbita Kenya. The center will serve to bring computer technology to villages and over 300,000 people in rural Western Kenya. Today, Dan Orao, a native of Kenya, and Mark Cebula visited the Comstock Park club to talk about recent efforts. A 4;600 square foot facility was recently completed thanks to earlier generous supporters. Another $20,000 is needed to equip the center with computers, printers, ceiling fans and office furniture.
