As scores of children across the country are engaged in either a fully virtual or a hybrid form of education, BTC continues to support students in need with devices to access their classes.
BTC CEO, Garry Sinclair said, “Access to education is a right and not a privilege so we at BTC are investing in tomorrow by supporting our students today. We’ve provided them with quality tablets in several islands to assist with addressing the access to technology gap.”
In its latest bid to support education, BTC provided tablets to students in Grand Bahama and Eleuthera. The company also provided a new desktop computer to supplement the equipment at the Old Bight Mission Home in Cat Island.
Ivan Butler, District Superintendent for the Ministry of Education in Grand Bahama and Bimini thanked BTC and said, Grand Bahama has been challenged by continued natural disasters and now the pandemic. Your donation is timely and appropriate and will greatly advance the education of several students in our district. The MoE is committed to embracing technology through its virtual platform as means of educating our students.”
BTC also provided branded protective masks for Oakes Field Primary, Stapeldon School, Gambier Primary, H.O. Nash and Thelma Gibson. Tablets were provided to Thelma Gibson Primary and students in Abaco and Eleuthera.
