MoE and CW Cares Helping Children Back to School

Avril Eiley

Schools are scheduled to resume in-person learning in the last week of August, so parents are trying to acquire those much needed textbooks and gather together money for various fees. One business, Cellular World, is partnering with the Ministry of Education by creating vouchers their customers can apply towards a child’s expenses. News Five spoke with Avril Eiley of CW Cares.

“What we’ve done this month, but actually started from July, we partnered with the Ministry of Education; they were kind enough to allow us to say let’s do this together. School is opening; we are hoping that everybody can get back to school, even if it is face-to-face or virtual. What we’ve done is to offer a ten dollar voucher for any customer who buys three hundred dollars plus. That voucher can be used for any needy child, for any child going to a public school. That voucher can be taken to the school and you get ten dollars off your school fees. So if your school fees is forty dollars for the month, you actually only pay thirty and the Ministry of Education will then turn around and bill us for it. So what we will do, we are sending as many kids as we can back to school. It is for anybody. If you don’t have a child in school, you are able to give it to a needy child; give it to your neighbour, give it to a niece, a nephew, anybody. There are lots of kids going back to school and parents are finding it hard to get everything together and so we are trying our best to help.”
