Food for the Poor Guyana Inc and the St Francis Community Developers have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars worth in books, rugs, television sets, health related materials, videos among other materials to several Berbice schools.
The items will be used to start or enhance the libraries at these schools.
The Central Corentyne High School has established a reading room at the school and apart from the books they also received a television set and floor mat which will be used to enhance the room.
At the same time the two organisations and officials at the school have launched a Health Programme called Healthy Hands, Healthy Bodies. The schools were encouraged to establish Health clubs which Mr. Foster said will persuade students to become health conscious.
The items were handed over to the school at a simple ceremony held at the St. Francis Community Developers Annex at Rose Hall Town. President of the St. Francis Community Developers and Representative of the Food for the Poor organisation in Berbice. Alex Foster stated that over the years, Food for the Poor has been venturing out into new areas and for some time they have been assisting in the education sector.
He pledged that his organisation will continue to assist in whatever way possible as long as the donated items are used for the intended purpose and they are satisfied with the purpose of the request and venture.
Among the schools benefiting were Ankerville and Rose Hall Town Nurseries; Rose Hall Town and Port Mourant Primaries and the Lower Corentyne; New Amsterdam Multilateral; Tutorial Academy; J.C Chandisingh; Corentyne Comprehensive and Winifred Gaskin Secondary Schools.
