“Education is the foundation for a successful future as it would open doors that normally remain close and would make sure life is worthwhile. The Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC) strongly believes that every one of its members should have an educational foundation and we would assist you in this effort.
Sports and Education can go hand in hand once you are committed, focused and self-driven. Education assists you to think on your feet and our own Jonathan Rampersaud has set an example that you can still play the game and emerge with eleven subjects including nine grade ones.”
Those were the inspiring words of RHTY&SC Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster when he launched the Lorenzao Johnny Memorial School Bags Project at the Area ‘H’ Ground last week. Dozens of club members each received a school bag under the project while the club’s ten cricket teams would distribute bags to less fortunate students with educational materials as part of the club’s countywide Say No/Say Yes campaign.
Under this campaign, the cricket teams encourage youths to Say Yes to Education, Sports, Culture, Life, Religion and No to Drugs, Alcohol, Crime, Tobacco, and Suicide. The Club’s Assistant Secretary/CEO Simon Naidu noted that businessman Ryan Tilak donated a large quantity of school bags in memory of the late Lorezao Johnny aka Sham. Johnny, a close friend of the club who was brutally murdered in Rose Hall Town by bandits while exercising near the St. Francis Community Developers compound.Naidu hailed Johnny as one of the main reasons why the RHTY&SC is now considered Guyana’s leading youth and sports organisation and as such the club was delighted to honor his memory by hosting this project.
He expressed gratitude to Tilak for his support and indicated that the programme would be an annual one. Tilak praised the outstanding work of the RHTY&SC and stated that he was pleased to be associated with the programme in memory of his late friend.
The ten cricket teams of the club are Poonai Pharmacy Under-12 and 13, Farfan and Mendes Under-15, Bakewell Under-17 and Second Division, Pepsi Under-19 and Intermediate, Metro Female, Namilco Thunderbolt Flour Under-21 and First Division.
