The Community Development Service Unit in the of The Ministry of Equity, Social Justice, Empowerment, Youth Development, Sports, Culture and Local Government is currently embarking on facilitating the re-establishment of development committees in the communities of Grace, Pierrot and Vieux-Fort.
As part of this process two separate meetings with community leaders and interested persons have been held in both communities towards the aim of sensitizing residents on the purpose, structure and responsibilities of a development committee.
The process continues with the hosting of elections for the executive of the development committees in the communities of Grace and Pierrot.
At Grace the meeting will be held at the Grace Combined School on Tuesday August 8th, 2017 at 7:00 pm and at the Pierrot Combined School on Wednesday August 9th, 2017 at 7:00pm.
Nominations for all executive positions will be done at the meetings and persons will be elected via the casting of secret ballots. The Community Development Service Unit invites all residents of Grace and Pierrot to attend the meetings.
