Methanex Trinidad Limited is the latest donor to the Adopt-A-School Project, which facilitates the provision of devices to students in need.
The employees of the Methanol Company, through a fundraiser, provided thirty laptops for the use of students. Mr. Rudo Trotman and Ms. Juliana Pierre of Methanex Trinidad Limited joined Dr. the Honourable Nyan Gadsby-Dolly at the Education Towers on Thursday 14th January, 2021, for a ceremonial handover of the devices.
During the delivery of her remarks as a representative of the employee body, Ms. Pierre outlined the various initiatives that they undertook to raise the funds for these devices.
Employees had the opportunity to donate the full or partial cost of a device or participate in competitions that allowed them to win a device for donation. Dr. Gadsby-Dolly, during her address, highlighted that efforts like these emphasize the commitment and mettle of the people of Trinidad and Tobago.
The Minister outlined, “Many children have never received anything of this nature in their lives. It is heartwarming to see this community of love that has stepped up to support our children and education. It is admirable that the employees saw this need and made this contribution.”
The thirty devices will be distributed to 17 institutions across the country.
