Roseau, Dominica – February 18, 2008……Hundreds of primary school children in Dominica are set to benefit immensely from the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding last week between the Caribbean Centre of Excellence in Teacher Training ( C-CETT) and DHL.
The Caribbean Centre of Excellence in Teacher Training (C-CETT) project is an initiative of United States President, Mr. George W. Bush designed to address high rates of illiteracy and school underachievement in the region.
Established in 2002, the C-CETT project was launched last year in sixty-one primary schools here from grades 1-3.
As a result of the signing of the MOU at a ceremony at the Fort Young Hotel last week, DHL will provide the Caribbean CETT project with discounted rates in the shipment of various project materials to Caribbean countries. DHL will also adopt a school in each of the Caribbean CETT countries in which DHL has branches, including Dominica.
