Every year since 1998, the Rainbow Foundation has contributed financially to the projects, School Feeding programs at the Massacre Canefield Gov’t School.

Three years ago, after recognizing the individual challenges that some students faced with school supplies, the foundation through the teachers at the school identified two students, One based on need from grade 3, and one based on academic excellence in Grade 6 to receive a Rainbow Foundation one year scholarship.

To date, four students have benefitted from this initiative.

This year, two more students will benefit, bringing the total of students benefiting to 6. Ms. Yasmine Edwards a grade three student, and Culture Henderson, a grade 6 student who was successful at the Grade 6 assessment, heading for his first year at Secondary school.

Together with these two scholarships, valued at $900.00, the foundation will make a financial contribution to the School Feeding Program valued at $500.00. With this contribution, the Foundation’s financial assistance to the school exceeds $72,000 to date.

The Foundation also took into consideration the plight of Ms. Jennifer Ann Francis, a lady who was made homeless in a story featured in the Sun Newspaper recently. The Foundation has made available to Ms Francis, $150 worth of groceries in the first instance to assist her with her every day food requirements.

The Foundation will make similar contributions to Ms. Francis at a later date as her situation is evaluated. The foundation encourages others to look kindly on individuals like Ms. Francis and contribute where necessary.

Mrs. Hyacinth Durand-Ducreay, Rainbow Foundation Dominica Representative, made the donations available to all recipients on behalf of the Foundation Founders, Mr. Mathew & Lillian St. Rose.
