Guyana Association of SVG formed


“If you really believe in the brotherhood of man, and you want to come into its fold, you have got to let everyone else in too.”

This is the strong belief of a few humanistic souls whose aim is to strengthen brotherhood in all mankind,{{more}} especially those who share the same nationality and those who are their friends and neighbours.

The recently formed Guyana Association of St Vincent and the Grenadines has been meeting for over five weeks, and consists of Guyanese who live and work in St Vincent and the Grenadines, and the spouses and children of those persons. It also welcomes friends and supporters of the Guyanese community. Additionally, the organization is preparing for the visit of Michael Brotherson, the Guyana Consul General for the OECS (resident in Barbados) in late September.

Coupled with the organising and planning of social events for Guyanese to meet with friends and supporters, this association’s sole raison d’être is to assist Guyanese living in SVG with issues which may arise from time to time, such as renewal of passports, renewal of ID cards, and NIS matters.

On Saturday, September 19, all Guyanese nationals living and working in SVG (including spouses, children, friends and supporters) are invited to another social event to be held at Glad Tidings Camp Site in Queen’s Drive. This event is scheduled to commence at 6 p.m. sharp. Interested persons are asked to come dressed in a Guyanese costume or ethnic dress, or a part of any costume or mask.

With the event being themed as a “Pot-luck/ costume party,” persons are also asked to bring along any one of the many national dishes of Guyana. Dishes of other nationalities are also welcome.
