The Sunshine Kids of Guyana Forum, a charitable non-profit organisation based in New York, whose main objective is to assist poor children in Guyana, has made a significant contribution to orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). The donation was made to the Central Islamic Organisation of Guyana (CIOG).
CIOG received US$3,150 and a quantity of stationery valued at US$500, which will be given to OVC in Demerara, Berbice and Essequibo. The donation was made possible through the kind courtesies of The Sunshine Kids of Guyana Forum and its directors Ms. Neesha, Zalina, Shanaz and Rita Singh of U.S.A. and Canada respectively.
The CIOG orphans and vulnerable children sponsorship programme started in 1993. Presently there are 355 children, of which 326 have secured sponsorship and 29 are yet to be sponsored.
Two hundred and forty-nine (249) orphans were awarded scholarships to attend educational institutions.
The CIOG in a release noted that it believes that it is only through an effective education system that Guyanese can meet the challenges which global pressure exerts on our potential to survive.
“Education is critical and as such the CIOG embarked on a deliberate plan to make education accessible to the poor and underprivileged while at the same time providing such high services that would attract students from all sections of society. The motto was developed as “Reaching the Unreached” regardless of racial, religious or social background,” the entity emphasized.
CIOG also expressed its profound gratitude and sincere thanks to the Sunshine Kids of Guyana Forum on behalf of orphans and vulnerable children countrywide.
