LEARNING CURVE: One thousand early-childhood institutions and primary schools across the island will receive Information Communications Technologies (ICTs) through the Digicel Foundation’s new initiative, Project 1000. Over the course of the next three years, some US$375,000 will be invested in the project, which is in keeping with the foundation’s aim of meeting the United Nation’s Millennium development goal of achieving 100% literacy by 2015. On Wednesday, a three-year MOU was signed between the Digicel Foundation and the Camara Jamaica Foundation, which will be providing the equipment. “Project 1000 is the most impacting, far-reaching, and unprecedented private educational initiative to be implemented in Jamaica to date,” explains Karl Gaynor, CEO of the Camara Jamaica Foundation. “The key objectives of this project will be to provide computers to about 80% of schools across Jamaica. It is a most ambitious effort, and will assist in providing the impetus for growth and development in education and technology."
