On Wednesday 30th December 2020, the ANSA McAL Foundation donated 100 Tablets to the Ministry of Education in Grenada. These tablets were purchased with funds raised from the ‘ONE YARD’ virtual benefit concert which aired on Friday 30th October 2020. The concert which was powered by the ANSA McAL Group of Companies showcased some of the best talent in the region and had the very important objective of facilitating access to remote learning for children throughout the Caribbean during the COVID 19 pandemic.
Managing Director of Carib Brewery Grenada Ltd, Mr. Ron Antoine, handed over the devices to the Honourable Emmalin Pierre, Minister of Education Grenada at a ceremony held at the Ministry of Education, Sir Eric Gairy Botanical Gardens, Tanteen, Saint George’s.
Through the special ONE CARIBBEAN FUTURE FUND created with the funds raised from the ONE YARD concert, the ANSA McAL Foundation has already distributed tablets to Ministries of Education in Trinidad, Barbados and Jamaica. The Foundation will also be distributing tablets to Guyana and St Kitts and Nevis to assist these islands which have also been grappling with the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic on their education systems.
