GMIAL inaugurates new ICT lab at Kendhikuludoo School
GMIAL, as a part of its CSR initiative has upgraded the ICT lab at Kendhikulhudoo School by providing the necessary equipment and facilities.
This facility was inaugurated yesterday by Andrew Harrison, CEO of GMIAL, in the presence of the students and staff of the school. Established in 1967, Kendhikulhudoo School presently has 357 students in primary, lower and secondary schools totaling to approximately 66 staff members at the school.
This project was undertaken by the school in order to cultivate ICT skills among students by conducting computer literacy programs for primary students, as well as introducing Computer Science as a subject taught in the secondary school. During the GMIAL CEO’s visit to Kendhikulhudoo in Oct 2011, he committed to help the Kendhikulhudoo School with their plans to upgrade the school’s computer lab. After an initial analysis, a team of GMIAL staff travelled to Kendhikulhdhoo this month to install the new equipment.
Kendhikulhudhoo is located in Noonu Atoll and has a population of 1660. The main occupation of the inhabitants of this island is fishing, with a few employed in civil service and tourism. The island community lives in two separate localities, Kendhikolhu and Kulhudhoo, which gives rise to unique challenges in the provision of services.
GMIAL’s Corporate Social Responsibility believes in creating sustainable impact on the human development of under-served communities through initiatives in education, health and livelihoods. These efforts are extended to strengthen communities and their institutions for a participatory and holistic development of the community.
Andrew Harrison CEO of GMIAL and members of the corporate CSR and Corporate Communication team travelled to the island of Kendhikulhudhoo to inaugurate the ICT lab. During his inauguration speech he advised the assembled students and parents that GMR was delighted to provide sustainable solutions to promote education among the very bright students of Kendhikulhudhoo school. He further committed to providing training and support for the teaching staff of the school.
