The project, valued at $130 million, is supported by the European Union and the Government of Jamaica. The Government has also donated $30,000 to each participating school to provide security for the labs. Local partners of INVOCAB include the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information; the University of Technology; The Mico University College; and Church Teachers’ College.
