YCT donates to Watooka Nursery School
The Youth Coalition for Transformation (YCT) on Friday handed over stationery and office supplies to the Watooka Nursery School. The items donated were furnished by overseas-based Guyanese Sahaboob Yassin.
The donated items include markers, pencils, crayons, play dough, exercise books, construction paper, scotch tapes and other play materials for the children of the nursery school. Some of the items will also be distributed to research centers that are being established in the town of Linden.
The donation was part of YCT’s continued drive on youth empowerment and community development by engaging varied communities through mobilizing resources, offering donations, and instituting programs to improve the literacy of Guyanese youths and children.
In expressing gratitude the Headmistress of Watooka, Ms. Lynette Welch, indicated the items donated will serve to improve the work of the school. The President of the YCT, Mr. Jermaine Grant, was delighted to offer the donations to the school from which the community of Linden will benefit.
The donation is a follow up to YCT’s initial engagement in the community of November 2012 after Mr. Yassin donated one million dollars towards the reconstruction effort of the One Mile Primary School and 12 computers for the research centers to be established in Linden.
