Let's double the donation. Two hundred (200) devices will be distributed in October to students constrained by the absence of classroom learning; four (4) schools; fifty (50) students at each. There are 890 primary schools across the island.

The pandemic forced teachers and students into distance learning. The new school year in October 2020, starts a combination of learning approaches. Teachers and students will work in a virtual environment.

The American Friends of Jamaica (AFJ) has partnered with the Seprod Foundation, part of the Musson Group, and the Ministry of Education to identify schools and students in need of tablets across the island.
