However, Digicel Foundation has reached out to to ease that burden through the donation of 1,000 tablets to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information and the Ministry of Labour and Social Security.
During a handover last Thursday at Digicel's global headquarters in downtown Kingston, CEO Charmaine Daniels explained that they are focused on enabling students with disabilities.
“We engaged both ministries to enable our students with disabilities to better access distance learning.
“Over the years, the foundation has continued to take on disabilities as part of its agenda,” said Colette Roberts Risden, permanent secretary in the Ministry of Labour and Social Security.
The Digicel Foundation has proven over the last fifteen years that they care about their corporate social responsibility and I would like to thank them for this donation of 1,000 tablets to children who are in need,” said Terrelonge.
