Karl Gaynor, CEO of the Camara Jamaica Foundation, receives a gift on behalf of his organisation, from Jo Anderson-Figueroa, Marketing and Communications Assistant for the Digicel Foundation. Occasion was the launch of the Digicel Foundation 2011-2012 Annual Report, held at the Spanish Court Hotel on October 3. The Camara Foundation is an Irish-based, non-profit organisation that uses technology to improve education throughout the world. In Jamaica, the Camara Foundation obtains, refurbishes and sells computers to schools at a reduced cost, and trains teachers in information technology. Both Foundations have partnered to provide computers for several programmes including mobile carts containing laptop computers. The carts are part of an Enrichment Initiative, launched in 2009, as a joint effort between the Digicel Foundation and the Ministry of Education. The programme was initiated with the goal of increasing literacy and numeracy at the primary level while also striving to meet the UN Goal of achieving 100% literacy by 2015.
