City Mayor Petterson Francis

(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – New York City-based Project Education announced today that His Worship Peterson Francis, mayor of the City of Castries, will deliver the keynote address at its eighth annual Breakfast for Education, to be held on Sunday, July 8, 2018, at the Saint Lucia House, 438 East 49 Street, Brooklyn, NY.

Project Education was launched in 2010 as a means to give Saint Lucians in the diaspora and their friends an opportunity to assist underprivileged students and families in Saint Lucia. Through the generosity of its many donors for the past eight years, Project Education has been able to equip hundreds of students in Saint Lucia with school supplies they might not otherwise be able to afford.

The annual Breakfast for Education has become a signature summer event for Saint Lucians in the tri-state area, attracting hundreds of attendees. The theme for this year’s Breakfast for Education is “A Celebration of our Commitment to the Education of our Saint Lucian Children.” Project Education founder Jeremiah Hyacinth said the chosen theme “is a reaffirmation of our collective commitment to guaranteeing equal access and educational opportunity for all our Saint Lucian children whose families are unable to give them a head start.”

“There is no more fitting way to celebrate the eighth anniversary of our Breakfast for Education than by hearing from a former educator whose passion for education remains unwavering,” Mr. Hyacinth continued. “We believe that the Mr. Francis’ invaluable experience as a community organizer and his insights as the mayor of Castries will be very enlightening to our audience.”
