The Dame Susan Dougan Foundation earlier today handed over school supplies and sanitary items to a number of schools across the country, in a ceremony at Government House.
The Governor General of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Her Excellency Dame Susan Dougan remarked that she established the foundation aims to give students a second chance and to create an environment where gaps can be filled.
The Governor General noted that after making contacts and conceptualizing the project, she decided it would be important to go to different schools across the country to assess the needs of students. The foundation visited a cross section of secondary schools which included Central Leeward, St. Clair Dacon and Sandy Bay Secondary.
Her Excellency added that that after a given period of time, she hopes to see improvements in students’ academic and overall deportment as she pledges her continuing support.
To date, the Dame Susan Dougan Foundation visited ten schools and intends to visit all schools in the country. The Foundation was launched on September 7th, 2023.
