Bridging the gap between individuals and their educational goals.
ACT believes that what our children learn today is what defines & shapes the world we will live in tomorrow.
A closer look
Even today, there are countries that have literacy rates below 50% among their youth. According to UNICEF, around 40% of children with disabilities are out of school at the primary level and 55% at the lower secondary level in low – and lower-middle income countries. An estimated 53% of children in low- and middle-income countries cannot read proficiently by age 10.
The main challenge would be joining hands with different organizations to create opportunities and ensuring their easy accessibility for all students. Technology can create richer learning environments and generate better outcomes, but not all students benefit equally from these advances. We aim to work towards eradicating these differences to maximize reach and deliver equal opportunities for each student in Antigua!
During the period of 1995-96, ACT started assembling computers to make them affordable for people in Antigua. Talking about the early years, Salomon Doumith (Managing Director – ACT) recalls – “With ACT computers, we not only brought technology to Antigua, we made computers affordable and we trained persons how to assemble, repair, and how to program a PC.” Since ACT’s inception in 1989, there is nothing more we value than education! We, at ACT, aim to pave a painless path for the students to complete their education, obtain a higher-paying job, and thus, set a stepping stone for career and personal advancement. ACT believes that with continued collaboration between public and private sectors, individuals can learn new skills through on-the-job training, formal education, and learning programs. With more individuals achieving their career, personal development and monetary goals, there will be an exponential increase in the number of individuals who can support themselves as well as their families.
