Telecommunication provider FLOW is donating tablets to the Ministry of Education as part of a nationwide effort to provide a device to every student in need of equipment to assist home learning during the pandemic.
One hundred and forty-five Amazon Fire 7 tablets have been provided to the Ministry of Education by the Cable and Wireless Charitable Foundation (CWCF), a nonprofit organization, to aid students in accessing the digital world and advancing their education.
General Manager, Jeffery Baptiste, says FLOW wishes to facilitate the Ministry of Education in bridging the gap between students and the possession of devices.
Baptiste says they are considering other methods for improving Dominica’s education system.
