Felicity Rotary to start financial literacy programme
Vernessa Sankar has been re-appointed as president of the Felicity/Charlieville Rotary Club. She said the social impact organisation will continue its successful wheelchair drive for the needy during the 2013-2014 term of office. During the same period, the club will move to implement a financial literacy programme. The club will roll out the programme within the next few months.
Speaking at the September 7 handing-over ceremony held at Plaza De Montrose in Chaguanas, Sankar said, “Our goal is to assist in narrowing the gap in literacy between children who are disadvantaged and those who are not. Initially, we will start this initiative immediately with a children’s homework centre, which is part of our strategic plan.”
She said the Rotary Club of Felicity/Charlieville proposes, in the long term, to introduce a children’s literacy activity initiative centre. This initiative will strengthen and enhance children literacy skills in the Felicity/Charlieville area of T&T. The group, through its signature wheelchair project, continues to be of service to the less privileged in its community and beyond. Of the 2,800 wheelchairs it acquired last year, nationals and Caricom citizens were the beneficiaries.
