To help control the spread of Covid-19 and protect school-age youth, the education sector initiated online learning for the final term of the current school year.
To help combat the challenges this posed, the team at JEB has donated two Xerox Multi-function devices and four computers to two schools and a development center on both the east and west coasts of the island under our Youth Empowered to Shine “YES” program.
On Tuesday, June 2nd, Ms. Lennel Malzaire Director of Innovation (Ag.) and her team delivered a Xerox WorkCentre 5325 & two Lenovo workstations to the Innovation & Career Development Centre (ICDC) in Micoud North.
On Wednesday, June 3rd, the JEB team visited the Roseau Combined School and donated two Lenovo workstations to their computer lab. This was followed by a visit to the Millet Primary School, where a Xerox WorkCentre 5325 was donated for use in the school’s ICT lab and support of school administration.
School Principals Ms. Lydia Justin & Ms. Sophia Auguste Lamontagne respectively spoke about their challenges and constraints, and noted the difference the JEB support will have on the students and their respective institutions.
These made the fourth equipment donation for the year 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic, with the previous being made to the Police Welfare Association.
