GIS – The Ministry of Agriculture, in collaboration with the Government of Taiwan and the CARITAS Antilles will undertake a feed the poor project that will benefit a total of 60 primary and secondary schools on the island.
The activity involves the planting of fruit trees and vegetable gardens; and the construction of green houses.
The Grand Riviere Primary School in the north is the first to benefit from the initiative. Principal Mauricia Francis expressed gratitude for the project.
“This activity could not have come at a more opportune time,” she said. “Lately, we have had to invest more in agriculture and by no means tree planting.”
Dr. Felix Jariah, Director of Agriculture Services, addressed the students.
“So by the time you get to Standard One, you will have fruits in your school yard. You will have cherries, golden apples, mangoes, guavas, all for you to eat, and to also sell, so that you can make money for your school.”
The project is currently underway.
