Tropical Shipping supports Rotary Club’s youth development, literacy initiatives

AIMING to promote youth development and literacy, the Tropical Shipping company made a sizeable donation to the Rotary Club of Georgetown Central.

In commemoration of its 40th anniversary since receiving the Charter, the Rotary Club of Georgetown Central has embarked on a series of innovative projects. This is all in keeping with the mandate of Rotary International.

According to a press release, in order to facilitate these initiatives, the club recently received a sizeable contribution from Tropical Shipping to be utilised primarily in support of projects related to youth development and literacy.
When handing over the cheque to Service Projects Director, Past President Judy Semple-Joseph, Country Manager, Glenis Hodge, said: “Tropical Shipping is proud to support initiatives that help youth to thrive. We are committed to Guyana, that is a commitment not only to our customers and their supply chain, but it is also about strengthening the communities in which we serve.

“It is, therefore, our pleasure to make this donation in support of the work of the Rotary Club of Georgetown Central and their youth development initiatives, which we believe will ultimately benefit Guyana.”

While expressing appreciation for the donation, President Peter Pompey highlighted that since receiving its Charter on November 1, 1983, the Rotary Club of Georgetown Central has adopted Rotary International’s philosophy comprising a combination of rules, principles and moral codes, including its Motto of “Service Above Self.”
“… With the support of partners and the public at large, the club over the years has been able to make a significant impact by undertaking and executing projects under Rotary International’s Areas of Focus: Basic Education and Literacy, Disease Prevention and Treatment, Water Sanitation and Hygiene, Community Economic Development, Maternal & Child Health, Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution and Support for the Environment,” he said.

Tropical Shipping, based in Florida, is a logistics and shipping company, which this year celebrated 60 years of serving the industry, specialising in ocean transportation and has been serving Guyana for more than 28 years, with a weekly service amongst Canada, the United States, the Caribbean and Suriname.
