Motorworld Group of Companies & Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise Donate Tablets to Schools

With continued dedication to the community of St. Maarten, Motorworld Group of Companies has partnered with the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise to donate tablets to schools. In response to the wide-ranging impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, local schools have implemented virtual classrooms which provide digital, internet-based education, from a safe social distance. However, many students are unable to follow online classes, as they do not have the necessary resources, such as digital devices or internet, at home.

Therefore, the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise has launched an island-wide initiative to “Help St. Maarten Children Receive Online Education.” The purpose of this major effort is to assist many students with digital devices, who otherwise, could go without education.

Motorworld Group of Companies donated 19 new tablets to assist with providing schools and students with the essential tools required for internet-based learning, the new norm. “In spite of the economic downturns that are affecting our business operations, we felt compelled to support this essential initiative by the Rotary Clubs, as we recognize the dire need for students to maintain their education online,” shares Tariq Amjad, Managing Director, Motorworld Group of Companies.

“On behalf of Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise, we would like to thank Motorworld for choosing to collaborate with our club to execute this much-needed community initiative that ensures children are educated online during this COVID-19 pandemic,” Dolly Sadarangani-Ahuja, President of the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise.

Through the Rotary Club’s ongoing initiative, a needs assessment has been conducted among the schools and students at several schools have been identified on the priority list for donations. Among them, several schools have already received donations of digital devices. This includes the following: The Ruby Labega School, St. Joseph School, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Primary School and Marie Genevieve de Weever School

Rotary Club’s fundraising drive for digital devices is an ongoing, community-wide effort. Motorworld Group of Companies is a long-standing partner of the Rotary Club of St. Martin, and will continue to strive to support the cause over time. Please contact President Dolly Sadarangani-Ahuja at 5223292 or Fundraising Director Prakash Dialani at 5229170 to contribute, or for further information.
