ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, 26 August, 2014: The staff and students of the Bel Air Government School will return to cleaner walls and an environment more conducive to learning in September. This is after the Batch 3 trainees under the New Imani Program, who use the institution as their Life Skills center, completed their community project.

The group, being appreciative that they were allowed to hold their classes at the school, decided to give back by cleaning the walls, windows and furniture, packing away books, paintings, weed-eating the yard and building a few seasoning beds.

Supervisor Berlinda Frank is happy that the trainees were enthusiastic about their community project, which is an important aspect of the New Imani Program. It affords the trainees the opportunity to give back to their communities and foster volunteerism.

Each group of trainees is expected to undertake a community project, on a quarterly basis, during their two-year training tenure under the New Imani Program.

Trainees Curliann Gludd and Talitha Drakes are happy to be a part of a beneficial project, whereby the students and teachers can return to a cleaner and healthier environment when school reopens on September 1st.

Teacher at the school Godwin Wildman thanks the trainees for the initiative and is confident that the students and staff will welcome the opportunity to save money from purchasing local seasoning for the school’s kitchen.

According to him, although the school was supporting a local farmer, the money can now be used towards another investment.

The Imani trainees also made a donation of books and other stationery items to the 4H Club of the school.
