The Trust has also contributed to the Centre of Excellence in Teacher Training (CETT) in the Division of Education, and has provided US$30,000 to the Family First Foundation Nurturing Centre to enhance the nutrition of children living with HIV/AIDS and survivors of gender-based violence. The US$200,000 contribution would allow the Assembly to introduce ICT in schools through the Young Scholars Programme whose goal was to explore the relationships between ICT, education, media education, and economic and social development and to suggest how the policy makers and school administrators of the Division of Education can best connect technology and education reform to sustain, equitable economic growth.
