Even with a grand prize of $US 1 million at stake and many more fantastic prizes that LIME is giving away this Christmas, the folks at LIME have not forgotten the prisoners at Her Majesty’s Prisons. On Tuesday 9th December, Country Manager Acting, Lydia Courtney-Francis donated 5 copies of the book “The Power of a Dream written by Grenadian writer Quammie Joseph.{{more}}

Quammie is a native of Petite Martinique and is currently a student at the St. Georges University School of Medicine where he is pursuing his own dream of becoming a neurosurgeon. He is of the view that there are too many people in the world and certainly in the Caribbean who are living without a dream and he is convinced that too many lives are wasted because of a lack of a dream.

“Success is a must and failure is not an option. This book is designed to inspire and motivate persons who have lost their way and will like to see them get back on track to achieve their dream,” said Quammie.

LIME donated computers to the prisons several months ago and sees this donation of books as a continuation of that dream of assisting in the reform of the young men in the prison.

“The donation of these books would go a long way in updating the prisons library and it is our corporate duty to assist this institution in educating the inmates. If we can assist in turning around a few lives and helping some of these young men to achieve their dreams and help them to make a positive contribution to the society, we may be able to rest peacefully in our homes and worry less about crime especially in a time when criminal activities are on the rise. LIME wants to make a difference and create better communities and better people,” said Courtney-Francis.

Senior Prison Office, Grafton Cordice accepted the books on behalf of the Superintendent of Prisons and believes that more corporate entities should emulate LIME and contribute towards turning around the lives of these prisoners. Quoting Mr. Cordice, “we are grateful to LIME for this continued relationship and I hope that the inmates will use the inspiring articles in the book to reform their lives and become better citizens. The prisons have lots of talented young men who are looking for positive guidance.”

The Power of a Dream consists of twenty chapters of very inspiring and thought provoking articles.
