The schools for children with special needs at Kingstown and Georgetown have each received grants of $3,110.{{more}}

The funds, totalling $6,220, were presented by Girlyn Miguel, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education, and made available through the efforts of Dr Christopher Stange, Hon. Consul for St. Vincent and the Grenadines in Northern Ireland, who created the “SVG Special Needs School Fund” to involve Vincentians residing in the United Kingdom/Ireland, businesses, individuals and voluntary organisations to donate.

The Consulate of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in Northern Ireland, has become actively involved in gaining donations from Nationals, businesses, individuals and creating partnerships with SVG, regarding economic, social and educational development.

Granshaw Presbyterian Church in Comber, Northern Ireland, was a major contributor, raising five hundred (GBP£500.00) pounds sterling from a Tear Fund luncheon arranged for this purpose.

The Special Needs Schools were identified following collaboration between SVG Government representatives and through the “Educational Revolution” plan, which coincides with the Government’s policy and continued commitment to education for all students at every level.
