As uncertainty looms about the physical reopening of schools this term due to the increase in the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Jamaica and across the world, millions of parents are also concerned about the fate of their children’s education because they do not have the resources to access classes online.

In helping to relieve some of these fears, New Fortress Energy (NFE), founded by American businessman and philanthropist Wes Edens, has donated tablets and laptops to close to 300 students at the high-school and tertiary levels, increasing its financial support from J$10 million in 2019 to now over J$18 million this year.
