Halo Foundation and Rotaract Club contribute to NSA, Sailability and Cedar Grove Primary to the benefit of students
Two private organizations have made donations to two academic institutions for the benefit of their students.
The National Sailing Academy (NSA) and Sailability received a $20,000 donation from the Halo Foundation last Friday, March 3.
The cheque was handed over by H.E. Lady Sandra Williams, president of the Foundation, and was accepted by Alison Sly-Adams, general manager of the NSA on its behalf.
The National Sailing Academy and Sailability are two of the non-profit organisations under the patronage of Their Excellencies Sir Rodney and Lady Williams.
In December last year, a fundraising event dubbed “Music for a Cause” was held on the lawns of Government House in aid of these two organisations and the services they offer in the area of sports.
The National Sailing Academy offers school children the opportunity to learn swimming and sailing free of charge, while Sailability provides instruction for the differently abled.
Meanwhile, the Rotaract Club of Antigua’s community service arm recently made a donation of 13 fans to the Cedar Grove Primary School.
This gift was presented under the Club’s Feel the Breeze initiative and is the organization’s contribution to a more comfortable environment, suitable for learning.
One of Rotary International’s goals is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy.
