The Guyana Council of Organizations for People with Disabilities (GCOPD) has received a donation of 15 electronic tablets from Huawei Technologies Ltd.
The facilitated devices were recently received from local country manager Huawei Technologies. The 15 media pads are to be used in GCOPD’s virtual education and training programs. Huawei Technologies Ltd promptly responded to a request from the organization for the donation to assist in the implementation of the virtual programs.
GCOPD management and prospective beneficiaries wish to express sincere thanks to Huawei Technologies Ltd for their kind and timely donation, which will greatly enhance the work of the organization.
Furthermore, the devices would ensure that people with disabilities who are in rural Guyana are able to access virtual education and training programs.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, almost all GCOPD programs are implemented and trainees and students are required to have an internet-ready device. However, the majority of people with disabilities who sign up for these programs do not have a device and the organization is required to provide the same to every individual. (GCOPD press release)
