Three organisations taking care of the Barbadian community one child at a time
Three organisations have collaborated to ease the lives of two children with special circumstances. ezLearner Inc, Precious Touch Foundation Inc and Guardian General Insurance Limited have partnered to gift a young boy and a girl with a computer and educational software.
This partnership arranged by Precious Touch Foundation Founder Adorial Maxwell-Hazell was warmly welcomed by ezLearner and Guardian General representatives.
“We are extremely grateful to be working with the Precious Touch Foundation on its friendly and caring mission to brighten the lives of these children,” commented the CEO of ezLearner, Mr. Troy Weekes.
“When Precious Touch Foundation approached us, we immediately decided we would do what we could to help the children. It is our hope that our gift would have a significant impact on their academic development.”
Precious Touch Foundation, founded to make the lives of ill children and their families better, provides support by making the wishes of these children come true. They coordinated the initiative whereby Guardian General provided the computers and ezLearner, the creator of several education applications for children, awarded each child a year’s scholarship to the ezLearner suite.
On May 18th, 2013, these organisations presented the gifts to the young people. Shanai Henry from St. Andrew was happy to receive her present which she will use to study more making full use of the comprehension, composition and the grammar sections of the application.
Donovan Prentice a resident of St. Michael is the other recipient of the scholarship and he is looking forward to using his gifts for many things including helping his brothers with their homework.
Precious Touch Foundation with the aim of bringing joy to the lives of children from the ages of 2 to 16 is pleased with the response to this distribution of gifts.
Adrian Millington, Director of Precious Touch Foundation celebrates the partnership and hopes the see more of these collaborations flourish to benefit children going forward.
“We want to see more the technology based partnerships as more children are savvy to these tools and would benefit from the computers and software for home-schooling and extra learning as they have to be away from school for doctor checkups and other reasons,” He noted. “Gifts like these will help the children not to fall back in their learning due to these issues.”
Donovan Prentice’s mother appreciates the support given to her by the Precious Touch Foundation and hopes the Foundation can grow to include more families in a variety of ways such as fun and sponsor walks and picnics to boost the morale of the children.
Troy Weekes, CEO of ezLearner, believes that gifts like this are essential to ensure that children of all social and economic circumstances have access to advancements in education and technology. He states that his company will continue to award scholarships to underprivileged children on an annual basis.
