Mustique Charitable Trust Provides 15,000 Lunches to Fifth Form Students in Response to COVID-19

Fifth Form students returned to school on Monday 25th May 2020 to resume classes in preparation for their CSEC/CXC Examinations. In response to this and as one of their COVID-19 response project, the Mustique Charitable Trust (MCT) has come forth to provide lunches to Fifth Form students in need.

A letter was officially presented by Dularie Malcolm (MCT Administration Director) to the Ministry of Education, National Reconciliation, Ecclesiastical Affairs and Information (MOE) represented by St. Clair Jimmy Prince (Minister), Myccle Burke (Permanent Secretary of MOE) and  Dixton Findlay (Deputy Chief Education Officer).

The letter advised the Ministry of the initiative taken by the Mustique Charitable Trust in supplying daily lunches for fifth form students in need at 26 Secondary Schools across St. Vincent and the Grenadines over the almost 5-week period for Term 3. The program is in response to the current COVID-19 issue and aims to provide daily lunches to approximately 40% of the Fifth Form student body. At the end of the period, a total of 15,000 nutritious lunches would be provided by the Mustique Charitable Trust.

At the presentation, the Minister commended and thanked the Trust on their initiative which showed their care for the students and advised that it was greatly needed at this time. In her speech, MCT Administration Director thanked all the Principals, Staff and Lunch Providers of the 26 Secondary Schools for their assistance in implementing the program. She also noted that an additional benefit of the program will be to generate some income for the lunch providers during this time.
