THE New York-based Guyana Greenlight Educational Project (GGEP) continues to positively impact the lives of hundreds of Region Three children living in communities within West Demerara. This Christmas, President of GGEP, Guyanese-born Ms. Salome Osborne, travelled home to be with the children, and attended more than nine Christmas parties at which she distributed toys to more than 400 children, in a bid to bring added joy to those, whose lives her organization has touched in diverse ways over the last eight years or so.
Before the start of the Christmas Week, GGEP had already made distributions to nine targeted schools, Sunday Schools and other youth clubs, namely:
* Bagotville Primary School
* Bagotville Nursery School,
* Bagotville Christian Brethren Assembly Sunday School,
* Bagotville Public Library branch members,
* La Retraite Nursery School
* AJ & E Daycare and Preschool
* GGEP Book Club
* GGEP Mentoring Class
* Fountain of Life Ministries Sunday School.
Speaking with the Guyana Chronicle, Ms. Osborne expressed pleasure at being able to travel home to share the joys celebrating the birth of the Christ Child with children of her community, and said that the toy distribution drive attracted great participation this year, and GGEP was able to extend its reaches.
Bursting with excitement as she spoke with the Guyana Chronicle, a few days before Christmas, Ms. Osborne said: “Every event was well attended, and the children had a good time, with lots to eat and drink. It was a pleasure for me, and it is not even over yet. There are still two groups to revel with.”
