The Harmony Secondary School in Linden is now better able to meet the needs of students in the technological field with the donation of five desktop and seven laptop computers which will be used to equip a computer lab. The donation was made by two women empowerment groups- The Anira Foundation and Links Incorporated.
Former First Lady, Sandra Granger represented the Anira Foundation while Dr. Cadance Cummings represented the Links Incorporated. These groups will be adopting and partnering with the Harmony Secondary School to provide the needed tangible assistance. Dr. Cadence Cummings, a physician in Long Island New York, USA said, “this is the beginning of greater things for Harmony Secondary School, we are here to support you and pave the way for your future.”
Former First Lady, Sandra Granger, said she fell in love with the school on a previous visit and will continue to visit. She posited that, “education is empowerment, education gives you the tool to move up and onwards and to take others with you.”
Regional Education Officer, Nicola Mathews, expressed how excited she was about the initiative. “For me this is a big thing, because you know that we are now in a technological age and so the presentation of these computers are welcomed as this time.”
Students and teachers of Harmony Secondary expressed how timely the donation is and committed to putting the equipment to good use.
Regional Chairman, Deron Adams, encouraged other persons in the diaspora to adopt other schools in the region and says that he will continue to find other innovative ways to connect with partners like Dr. Cummings and former first lady, Sandra Granger, to ensure that Region 10 continues to excel.
