The company in a media release today said this was followed by a donation of one hundred (100) computers to the Ministry of Education and ten (10) to the National Crime Prevention Program.
The initiative continued this week (09 to 13 November 2020) with a donation of one hundred (100) computers to students belonging to Heritage’s fenceline communities.
The company distributed over 300 computers through the initiative. As with previous donations, the donated computers were sourced from the company’s surplus computer inventory, which are functional and suitable for online learning.
Various community groups assisted Heritage in identifying the students and households that were in need of computers.
Heritage said they will continue to Equip Students with Computers for Online
Learning with over 300 donated so far
Heritage’s Corporate Communications Manager, Arlene Gorin-George indicated that the program will continue over the coming months: “Education is one of the three (3) pillars of our CSR program. It is expected that COVID-19 will continue to pose serious challenges to the many of our nation’s students as it relates to computer access. We are committed to maintain our focus on identifying students in our communities who are in need and distributing the available computers to them.”
The Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategy is intended to enhance stakeholder confidence and contribute to national development with a focus on its Fenceline communities.
