Scotiabank Funds Computer Lab For Eccles Nursery

Georgetown, March 20, 2015. Several hundred students at Eccles Nursery School will get training in the use of computers thanks to a recent donation of a computer lab by Scotiabank's Community Program.

This week, Scotiabank’s Marketing Manager Jennifer Cipriani handed over the six workstations to excited students and teachers during a presentation at the school, located at Republic Park, East Bank Demerara.

In brief remarks, Cipriani noted that the donation was in keeping with the bank’s commitment to giving children an opportunity to realize their potential through funding and volunteer efforts under its Community corporate giving program.

She noted that school projects such as these make a huge impact on society as hundreds of children will benefit from a relatively small contribution.

In 2014, Scotiabankers in Guyana contributed over 1200 volunteer hours while the bank spent over $14M on Scotiabank Community projects throughout the country.
