The ICT Development Programme has announced that it is investing over half a million dollars into Dominica's education sector. Almost 500 computers were formally handed over to all secondary schools, several primary schools and the Dominica State College, at the Dominica Grammar School on Friday. The initiative was funded by the European Union. Director of Telecoms Sylvester Cadette said the donation of computers and other networking equipment is meeting the goals of the ICT Development programme while enhancing the learning environment at school.
Meantime member of the European Union Delegation to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean Yves LeCointe, said the investment should help to improve computer literacy in Dominica. The Massacre Primary, Vielle Case Primary, Convent Prep, Goodwill primary, Soufriere primary and Bagatelle Primary were given computers.
