SINCE its formation in 1990, the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club has placed special emphasis on the importance of education by investing heavily to assist students to fulfil their educational goals.To this end, the club assisted one drop-out youth and 12 students of the Rose Hall Town Nursery School.The club’s assistant secretary/CEO, Simon Naidu, stated that the main agenda for Guyana’s leading youth and sports organisation in 2019 is the promotion of its highly successful ‘Say No/Say Yes’ Campaign which targets all youths in Berbice.The 10 cricket teams recently donated financially to 18-year-old Govindan Sahadeo of Port Mourant to assist him to fulfil his dream of writing several subjects at the CSEC Level.Sahadeo was forced to leave school due to the ill-health of his father; he had to work and take care of his younger siblings. Today, he wants to complete his education with the objective to join the medical profession.Naidu, in handing over the $20,000 cheque, praised the employee of the Port Mourant hospital for having the courage to complete his education and stated that the RHTY&SC was willing to assist in the future. Sahadeo expressed gratitude to the club.The teams also handed over $50,000 worth of educational materials to the management of the Rose Hall Town Nursery School.The much-needed items would be donated to 12 students of the school based on discipline, attitude and the financial income of their parents.Additionally, RHTY&SC and the teams donated over $100,000 worth of trophies, medals and prizes to several schools across Berbice on requests for upcoming graduation and fund-raising events.Naidu stated that the club would continue to invest in youths and disclosed that a major sponsorship would soon be unveiled for the Say No/Say Yes Campaign.
