Our Grateful Recipients
On December 8th, 2015, Liz Cox, President of the Georgetown Rotary Club and Mr. Abraham David, Guyana America Partner’s representative and Project Coordinator, officially opened the playground at No.29 Village Primary School in West Berbice. The playground is equipped with items such as swings, slides, see-saws, climbing frames, jungle gyms, and rock climbing domes.
In gratitude for this gift, students at No.29 wrote letters to the donors of this project, thanking them for making a difference in their lives. We have included their writings so donors can see the impact they are making in the lives of these learners.
“Thanks for thinking about us and our school by sending us all the wonderful things to play on every day”
