Over 380 Children From North Leeward Receive School Supplies

Over 380 children from across North Leeward returned to school on Monday with additional school supplies including brand new back packs and stationary thanks to the efforts of several youth groups across the constituency and the support of the business community.

The initiative took the form of a back to school fair held at the Petit Bordel Playing Field on Saturday 24th August, 2019 and continued with a distribution drive in some communities last weekend.

According to Senator Carlos James, one of the organisers behind the initiative, the event was an amazing show of solidarity from the business community in partnership with youth-based organisations within North Leeward.

Senator James stated that he wants to personally thank all the donors who made the event a success adding that they are their developmental partners and the back to school initiative could not have been a success without them.
