Some $13 million was given to the parent body — St. Francis Community Developers — for its Family Youth and Children at Risk Project.The donors, UNICEF, Food for the Poor Guyana, USAID/GHARP and CIDA, to name a few, usually request inter alia audited financial statements, expertise of staff, constitution of the organization, legal registration and organizational policy. To many of the grass roots organizations those requirements pose a challenge. “To us it was also a challenge, but the difference is we have most of what is required, the essentials, and our track record took us the rest of the distance.”The actual construction of the administrative block began in October 2007 and was completed earlier this month. The contract was awarded to Jainarine Ramoo, known as‘Brian,’of Rose Hall Town.The building belonged to the Hamid family of Hampshire, and was located at Fyrish Village.

The entire Community Empowerment Complex and Development Village would sit on a 10-acre plot of land.

This leg of the project is funded by Food for the Poor Guyana and will house the remedial training centre, classrooms and a child friendly environment. President of the St. Francis Community Developers, Alex Foster, expressed gratitude to UNICEF for their faith in the club. “They trusted us and believed in our dream of establishing this general complex.Because of their trust, a number of other donors are now willingly coming on board to make this dream a reality. To them all, we say thank you.”He singled out Food for the Poor Guyana for their all round investment and support in the various activities and project, “Without this support, our programmes would not have been so successful in reaching the thousands of persons we are able to support.”The USAID/GHARP and the Commonwealth Youth Programme were also recognized for their support. The Department of Education also received plaudits for their collaborative efforts in ensuring that the school’s population would derive benefits from the various programmes of the Education Ministry.The remedial school is expected to open its doors for the new academic year in September.
