Continuing his recent philanthropic efforts, LIME brand ambassador and sprinting sensation Asafa Powell visited his alma mater- Ewarton Primary School on Thursday (November 1) to make a donation toward the improvement of the Physical Education programme at the school. Courtesy of his sponsor LIME, Powell also donated a Lenovo desktop computer to the schools’ computer lab.

Before receiving Asafa’s $150,000, Principal Malgalyn Clunis spoke of the former sprint champion; “This is the story of a son who has done extremely well and has returned home to share his blessings with his roots.”

 Most of the funds are to go to towards retrofitting the school’s physical education department. The LIME Foundation’s computer donation will help boost the availability of stations in the school’s computer lab.

Chairman of the LIME Foundation, Errol Miller, said the donation forms part of the Foundation’s commitment towards securing the best education experience for Jamaica’s children, especially those in rural areas. He lauded the students for their discipline throughout the ceremony and congratulated the school’s staff for their guidance in that regard.

The Ewarton Primary principal labeled the occasion a “teaching moment” for students on what talent, determination and hard work can do, and for parents on the pride that follows a commitment to loving their children unconditionally.

Two weeks ago, along with the LIME Foundation, Powell made a similar donation of $200,000 and computers to assist with tuition fees for twelve students at the Jamaica German Automotive School (JAGAS)

The LIME Jamaica Foundation, established in 2003, has Education as its primary focus with a strong emphasis on the proliferation of free Internet in Primary Schools and to community groupings.
