The IGY Rodney Bay Marina is giving back through its “Inspire Through You” program. The program, which sees staff undertaking philanthropic projects every first quarter of the year, this year targeted students of the Lady Gordon Opportunity Center at Ciceron. Together with the Rotary Club of Gros-Islet the team was able to give a major facelift to the school.
The work done at the Lady Gordon Opportunity Center included a general cleanup, library enhancements, the installation of an AC unit. It also involved building shelves, laying floor mats, the preparation of land and a water tank to commence a farm to table program.
The pride and passion shown by the Principal, teachers and particularly the students , Mr. Sean Devaux says, motivated his team tremendously.
The “Hands Across the Sea” was also very instrumental in providing much needed books for the school’s library. Hands Across the Sea is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising the literacy levels of children in the Eastern Caribbean
