Tablets for 40 students so far; help Kiwanis Club of Providenciales donate more

#Providenciales, Turks and Caicos– October 25, 2020 — Kiwanis Club of Providenciales has already given away 40 laptops to students in two islands and the group wants to do more, explaining the need continues to be great for children who – due to the coronavirus pandemic – have been thrust into virtual learning.

CAM Money Transfer partnered with Kiwanis to provide 40 tablets to TCI students

CAM money transfer came onboard as a partner in the effort; Merline Remy, of CAM was on hand for the presentation in Providenciales.

Worldwide demand created by the sudden, simultaneous shift to virtual learning for billions of children has made tablets and laptops hard to find, but Almando Rigby, president of Kiwanis explained the organsiation was thrilled to have secured the all-important devices.


“Along with CAM, Kiwanis was able to send five tablets to Grand Turk and distribute the others here in Providenciales. Our members know there will continue to be a need for these tools amidst the coronavirus pandemic and we are also convinced that there are many more children who require reliable devices for continuity in their educational development,” said Rigby.

It is why the Kiwanis Club is calling on residents to donate whatever they can to the CIBC FirstCaribbean bank account of the organisation.
