LIME, the Caribbean’s largest telecommunications company, continued its support of the Hope for Today Foundation with a recent donation of a laptop computer to Brent Hydes, operations manager at the Halfway Housing Campus.
Julie Hutton, marketing manager at LIME, Cayman Islands, said, “LIME already supports the foundation with Internet connections and Wi-Fi modems but by adding an additional laptop it will mean more of their residents will be able to job hunt, learn basic computer skills and have access to e-mail. In today’s world access to the Internet is vital and residents will be able to post their resumes, get help writing a resume and search job listings as well as being able to research education opportunities.”
The Hope for Today Foundation is a nonprofit organisation that offers a place of recovery for those who wish to live a life free of substance abuse. The foundation has successfully established two half-way houses, one each for men and women, to help with their transition back into society.
Mr. Hydes said, “Everyone today needs access to the Internet, as we are now in the information society and we need to be involved and up to date with information locally and at a global level. Our residents will benefit greatly from this valuable donation from LIME.”
