Literacy Project ~ Penal Rock Road
In observance of The United Nations General Assembly’s ” International Day of Education”, Soroptimist International Esperance presented Penal Rock SDMS Early Childhood Centre with storybooks, colouring books, workbooks, crayons and modeling clay.
Our club chose this project to support the UN in their first-ever International Day of Education campaign to meet targets of the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. It was designed to raise awareness of the role a quality education plays in poverty eradication and other areas. This plays an important part in future economic empowerment and quality of life for all.
The project involved establishing a relationship with the Early Childhood Centre, assessing their needs and purchasing the items needed, and a visit to the Centre and presentation of the items by club members. We aim to educate, enable and empower students to be the best that they can be.
This project resulted in laying the foundation for Trinidad to be an integral part of the future development and achievement of peace and the building of sustainable societies in the future. The national newspaper, The Trinidad Express published an article about the project in which they said, ” SI Esperance recognizes the foundational role of education for peace and development and acknowledges that quality education transforms lives from an early age.”
