Bahamian Lawmakers Donate 260 Laptops to Schools

SAN JUAN – Members of the Bahamian Parliament have given 260 laptops to local schools to help students learn and use new technologies, media outlets said Thursday.

The $156,000 donation was made to the non-profit organization Mission Educate Bahamas, which works to provide educational tools to the country’s youth.

“We must not pay lip service to the commitment that every child counts. We must find an equitable way to ensure that every child has access to our country’s resources, including the disabled,” Prime Minister Perry Christie, who contributed $48,000 to the cause, said in comments picked up by Bahamas Local.

The minister of Education, Science and Technology, Jerome Fitzgerald, said the initiative is part of the government’s efforts to improve educational standards.
