QIA announces laptops-for-students initiative expansion

July 29, 2020
The Qikiqtani Inuit Association has announced the expansion of a laptops-for-students initiative, which will provide laptops to students whose education has been affected by COVID-19. The initial funds for the program from the Government of Canada and the Mastercard Foundation funded the provision of 65 Google Pixelbook Go laptops, and Nation Talk reports that the charity Actua has donated an additional 40 laptops to the initiative. QIA states that any Inuk student between the ages of 8 and 18 who has lived for at least one year in a Qikiqtani community is eligible. QIA | QIA (NV)
