Education Portfolio | Digicel Jamaica Foundation

Education

The Education Portfolio offers support to projects and initiatives that focus on innovative techniques and solutions aimed at enhancing the teaching and learning experience.

The push for STEM education is a major focus for Jamaica’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Since 2009, our team has been leading the charge to support STEM education and investing in science and mathematics labs across the island.

Through our Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) initiative, we have been able to boost the participation and performance of students while positively impacting some of our nation’s most vulnerable. We are ensuring that students across the island have the equipment and tools they need to build an affinity for science.
