"Hurricane Maria has destroyed the majority of the technology the teachers of Dominica had. ... We need to rebuild this much needed infrastructure to provide the best learning opportunities for Dominican students."
"I urge you to continue to make the concerted effort to use ICT to enrich learning for all students and to bring our educational landscape to the next level by enhancing education through technology."
"Alberta’s education community is fortunate to be able to learn and grow through IT for Dominica, a project built on relationships, sharing, and hope".
"The project was designed originally to improve the availability of ICT equipment for education on the island. It has surpassed its original mandate providing, not only ICT equipment but training of approximately 1000 teachers in ICT in Education Technologies over the period."
"The University of Lethbridge has long partnered with the IT for Dominica Project in supporting teacher development and in assisting students and teachers on the island."
"As co-founder and lead for IT for Dominica we have and will continue to make a difference for students. Hurricane Maria and its aftermath have affected the nation island-wide. Through partnerships and your generous donations we will rebuild, making a difference for students in a time of need. The best rebuilding is building for today."
"The Ministry is fully dedicated to supporting the partnership and is totally committed to goals and directions of the Project. It is our belief that this partnership is one that will continue to grow... as we seek to rebuild the ICT in Education programme and provide a 21st Century education for our students."
Hurricane Maria has stymied opportunities for Dominican students to learn using educational tools commonly found in North American classrooms. Their education is at risk. Through your support we will offer Dominican students a contemporary, meaningful education served by knowledgeable teachers with effective learning tools at hand.
The IT for Dominica Foundation is a volunteer organization who, for over twenty years, has partnered with public entities in Canada and the Commonwealth of Dominica in the interest of providing contemporary education to students and teachers in Dominica. Over this time IT for Dominica has provided professional development, technology resources, technicians, and professional and technical expertise.
