Rubis recently continued its support of the country’s online schooling effort by partnering with the Grenada Community Development Agency (GRENCODA) to supply much needed tablets.
The energy company recently presented 24 tablets to allow improved access to online learning through the GRENCODA programme, which guides and supports rural individuals, families and communities to improve the students’ quality of life. GRENCODA achieves this by encouraging participation in community-based initiatives which are targeted at women, youth and low-income workers. The children who received the tablets were from public schools in St. John.
Charles Archer, Country Representative for Rubis, told the audience how wonderful an opportunity it was for Rubis to be in a position to provide devices that enabled the recipients to enjoy the full virtual learning experience. He stressed “It is important that the children use and take good care of the tablets, so they can be shared with others once they have completed their programme.” He reminded those gathered to protect themselves and others from the COVID-19 virus by following the protocols at all times.
