Kingston, Jamaica: – In his quest to “try and get a computer and Internet connection into every school in Jamaica,” Mavado kept his promise to assist in ensuring all local schools are able to connect to the Internet by donating 2 computers each to Constant Spring All Age and Charlie Smith High School on Tuesday October 22.
“I give thanks to God that I am now in a position to help my country. I gave to Constant Spring Junior High and Charlie Smith first, because I attended those schools myself, but we will be going to schools around the island. Our aim is to cover every school.” – Mavado
“We really appreciate this donation. I hope that other entertainers will follow and try and make a difference ” – Marva Maylor, Business Basic Coordinator at Constant Spring All Age
“This donation was a surprise because David Brooks did not have a long stay at this institution and for him to remember us is a really good thing.” – Mr. Dennis Kelly, Principal of Charlie Smith High School
CONNECT JAMAICA aims to donate computers every month to schools around the island, raising funds via various events and donations. CONNECT JAMAICA is taking advantage of the telecommunications provider Flow Jamaica ‘s offer of free Internet connection to all schools over the next two years.
“This is not a short term thing we want to do once, we want to establish it as a cause anybody can contribute to.” – Mavado
Mavado’s annual Birthday Bash dubbed the Real Mckoy will take place on Saturday December 1st at the Temple Hall Estate in St Andrew and will be donating a significant portion of the proceeds towards purchasing computers for CONNECT JAMAICA.
“Investing in the future of our nation is not something you need to be inspired to do; it is everybody’s duty. I have a powerful voice amongst the people so I intend to also use it positively and to help contribute to the future of our nation.” – Mavado
