NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Myers Group yesterday responded to the Ministry of Education’s (MOE) appeal for tablets for every child in The Bahamas.
The group of companies (KFC, Burger King, Dunkin’, Pizza Hut, Anthony’s [Paradise Island] and Quizno’s) made the presentation Monday, December 21, 2020 at the ministry’s headquarters on University Drive, where Minister of Education Jeffrey Lloyd and ministry officials accepted the donation and thanked the Myers Group.
Three months ago, Leno, in conjunction with the MOE and Aliv, launched the Leno Learning Link Drive to put devices in the hands of every student. According to Sean K Longley, founder and president, Leno, the need to put a tablet in the hands of every child is urgent.
“When we announced the Leno Learning Link, there were 36,303 students who could not attend a virtual class because they needed a tablet or learning device,” said Longley.
“Today, that number is 13,119, thanks to so many who contributed through the Leno Learning Link or directly with the MOE. Now with the Myers Group…teaming up, I know that we can put this over the top and reach our goal, putting a device in the hands of every child.”
