The Digicel Foundation handed over five computers and one laptop to Woodhall Basic School on Friday, March 15. The school was established in 1978 in rural Clarendon and currently has 75 students enrolled. In 2006, the school was a recipient of a new school building from the Jamaica Social Investment Fund. The current principal is determined to expose his students to technology from an early age.

The computers will be used to enhance the teaching of phonetics and reading. This will promote computer literacy among the youth in the community, many of whom do not have access to computers or the internet at home. The computers are sourced by the Camara Jamaica Foundation.
