The Adult Literacy Tutors Association (ALTA) received four laptops from the Heritage Petroleum Company Limited (Heritage) on Friday.
A statement from the company said that following the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, Heritage responded to the increased need for computers to facilitate online learning locally, donating close to 500 computers to students in keeping with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
At the handover ceremony, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Heritage, Arlene Chow, said: “Investing in education is one of the most powerful ways to facilitate sustainable development, which is a cornerstone of Heritage’s CSR strategy. We saw the need for computer access, and we have been responding in this way. We anticipate that many families and communities will reap the benefits of this initiative for many years to come and we commit to implementing other programs to positively impact our citizens and ultimately, our nation”.
ALTA’s Resources Development Manager, M’aisha Thomas, who received the items on behalf of her organisation said: “We extend sincere appreciation to Heritage Petroleum for these laptops which will be used by students to access our online learning platform to improve their reading and spelling skills. This willingness to act as a bridge between our students and their literacy goals signal a broader commitment to national development. Thank you, Heritage.”
