Seventy-five students who attended the Denbigh Agricultural Show went home with tablets just in time for back-to-school, courtesy of the Digicel Foundation's Project 1000.

Through its Schools In initiative, there was a huge focus for Digicel at Denbigh to equip students for back-to-school. Students were invited to sign up in teams to compete in the company's quiz competition for the opportunity to win tablets and other goodies.

In keeping with the United Nation's Millennium Development Goal of achieving 100 per cent literacy by 2015, Digicel Foundation's Project 1000 has reached almost 3,000 students to date.
