The ten cricket teams of the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club for the 13th successive year joined hands with long term partner Dave Television
Station to host the Annual RHTYSC/DTV-8 Berbice Mother of the Year Award Ceremony. Three outstanding mothers: Kamaldai Panday, Canesha McKenzie and Indira Indarsingh were honoured as Mothers of the Year for being outstanding role model parents and mentors to their children.
Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster stated that DTV-8 and RHTYSC since 2007 have hosted the popular Award Programme and over the last thirteen years, dozens of outstanding mothers have been honoured. The main objectives of the Berbice Mother of the Year Award are to recognise the contribution of outstanding mothers, to provide role model mothers for younger mothers to emulate and to promote the importance of motherhood.
Foster stated that Motherhood is the most important job in the World, as it is no simple task to conceive a child, carry it within your body for nine months at great health risk and then nurture it to become an adult. The bond between a mother and her children is unbreakable. Mothers, Foster noted are God’s representatives on earth and he praised the three mothers for being outstanding parents. With today’s modern world with so many distractions such as social media, it is very difficult to be a parent it was noted. The RHTYSC Secretary/CEO urged the parents to share their experiences with the younger generation of mothers. One of the main problems in Berbice today, he stated is that teenagers are making children and most of them are not looking after their children like the older generation of parents.
He decried the lack of involvement of grandmothers in the development of children, unlike the past where grandparents were actively involved in the day to day development of their grandchildren. The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club Secretary/CEO hailed the contribution of his mother Claudette and Grandmother Josephine who were the main reasons why he and his brothers are so successful because they made sure that the three brothers understood the importance of hard work, education and faith in God. He urged the parents to preach a daily gospel of personal discipline, importance of education and family unity to their children and urged the attentive children to always respect and cherish their mothers.
DTV-8 Managing Director Anita Rambarran noted that the Television Station was proud to once again work along with the RHTYSC to honour mothers in Berbice. DTV-8 popularly known as the Family Station, she stated was dedicated to the development of families across Berbice and would continue to work along with the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club in the future. Each of the Awardees received a trophy, medal, framed certificate and a special gift from the Club. The winners were chosen after children across Berbice were encouraged to submit an Essay on the Topic: “Why I love my Mother”.
The ten cricket teams of the RHTYSC also provide snacks and refreshments to Old Age Pensioners as they wait to uplift their monthly pension at the Rose Hall Town Post Office.
