Christmas came early for some students in rural schools in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) this year with Digicel’s recent gift of 20 laptops to help ace their studies.
The gift of 20 laptops to four rural secondary schools and one primary school will see 1,000 students benefiting from being connected, a Digicel release states.
The lucky schools were Central Leeward Secondary, West St. George Secondary, Sandy Bay Secondary, Georgetown Secondary and Langley Park Government.
Expressing delight at the opportunity to help the schools and students, Digicel St. Vincent and the Grenadine’s CEO, Victor Kovacs said “This is what it’s all about for Digicel. Life is all about connections and so are we – so it made perfect sense to us to gift our school kids with the connectivity tools they need to excel in their studies.”
He continued: “Every small step towards bridging the digital divide and allowing people to benefit from being a part of the knowledge economy translates to increased opportunity for all. We’re proud to play our part in building beautiful St. Vincent and the Grenadines as a digital destination and happy to help these kids to a brighter future.”
