November 21, 2022


On November 19, Chargé d’Affairés Shante Moore delivered remarks and handed over USAID-funded COVID-19 care packages to the Minister of Education Dr. Nyan Gadsby-Dolly, and children attending the Ministry’s World Children’s Day celebration at the Queen’s Park Savannah.

In his remarks Moore said, “As we celebrate World’s Children’s Day, this is a chance for us to reaffirm – as governments and as people – our commitment and aspiration to supporting the welfare of all children, regardless of citizenship and nationality, around the world.

“Our collective emphasis on this Children’s Day is inclusion for every child, and our donation from USAID this morning will ensure that 3 – 6 year old children in government-run early childhood centers, receive face masks, hand sanitizers, disinfectant wipes and a notebook to ensure a safe learning environment.”
