The Ministry of Education Wednesday received 35 tablets from Demerara Bank Limited and Amazon Supply to be given to students in need.
Branch Coordinator and Marketing Officer of Demerara Bank Limited Ms. Christina Correia said the donation follows an engagement with the Ministry of Education regarding the provision of tablets to support students’ learning during this time.
She said that the Bank recognizes that now is a tough time for all Guyanese especially students since they are unable to attend physical classes and don’t have devices to engage in virtual learning.
Ms. Correia said that Demerara Bank Limited is happy to partner with the Ministry to supply 15 tablets to aid in the initiative. She said that the Bank has always supported such initiatives as it believes in heavy investment in education to mold the nation’s children.
Representatives from Amazon Supply handed over 20 tablets to the Ministry and they too expressed their gratitude in being given the opportunity to contribute in such a major way.
Minister of Education Priya Manickchand thanked both entities for coming on board particularly in this time. She committed to continued collaboration for future initiatives so that the education sector can be further improved and its services more accessible to all Guyanese.
