Melissa Skerrit Foundation launched to help ‘transform lives’

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Tweet Share Sharecenter_img 1129 Views   6 comments LocalNews Melissa Skerrit Foundation launched to help ‘transform lives’ by: Dominica Vibes News – December 23, 2016 Melissa Skerrit, the wife of Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, has established a foundation to help transform the lives of disadvantaged persons in society.The foundation, dubbed the Melissa Skerrit Foundation, was launched in Morne Daniel on Thursday 23 December 2016.In addition to launching the foundation, she also hosted a Christmas party for over three hundred children. The children were treated to gifts, snacks and also engaged in various games.“Many of you are familiar with quite of few programs I have done in the past, and over the past five years, I have focused on a lot of the critical areas in which many of you here have benefitted from,” Mrs Skerrit said.Among her many initiatives are the ‘Elderly Love Care’ program, through which elderlies were provided with medication and food and supplies; the ‘Bless A Baby’ program through which mothers were provided with basic necessity for babies, like milk, pampers, wipes and food; and the ‘Back To School’ scholarship program for children, as well as care packages with supplies for school.In the Melissa Skerrit Foundation, a school feeding program will be introduced in January 2017. This is being introduced to assist a number of mothers, who have indicated to Mrs Skerrit during her home visits that they would keep their children away from school because they did not have snack or lunch to give to them. “To me, in this day and age, for a child to be denied of education because of a basic necessity like food, I thought something had to be done,” Mrs Skerrit said.Currently, there are school feeding programs at primary schools across the island with support from government and JICA, where meals are made at the school and given to the students.However, the Melissa Skerrit Foundation’s school feeding program will not be “the typical school feeding program”.“Most of the other programs that you heard about where the food is cooked, it’s a hefty meal, it’s cooked in the school and given to the child, it’s not that case,” Mrs Skerrit noted.“It is a case where I have selected a restaurant in Roseau, who will be making delicious, but healthy snacks for your children, and it will be delivered to their school and their principal or their teacher will give it to your child,” she explained.This school feeding program will be done through the support and sponsorship of corporate entities to include MMC.According to Mrs Skerrit, snacks like pancakes, chocolate milk, fresh local juice, sandwiches, hot dogs, among a variety of wholesome snacks and lunch will be provided.– / 120last_img read more

QPR v Brighton player ratings

first_imgSee also:Austin the hero as QPR battle back against BrightonQPR don’t want to sell Austin, insists Hasselbaink QPR produced a terrific comeback to clinch a point against Brighton. Here’s how we rated the Rangers players in the 2-2 draw at Loftus Road.Rob Green: 5Poor footwork has arguably always been a major weakness of Green’s and he was certainly at fault for Brighton’s second goal, failing to adjust his position after a shot had taken a deflection off Grant Hall. Overall, his failure to command his area did little to help his defenders.AdChoices广告Nedum Onuoha: 7Did a solid job at right-back after moving there following an early injury to James Perch.Grant Hall: 8Another tremendous performance from the centre-back, who goes from strength to strength. Looked slightly jaded in the second half of the previous couple of matches but remains Rangers’ most consistent performer. Once again he was committed, positionally sound and read the game very well.Paul Konchesky: 6Unspectacular but reliable at left-back and tucked in to help out his centre-backs at important times.Sandro: 7Felt he was fouled in the build-up to Brighton’s first goal and went off soon afterwards. Played well during a first half QPR largely dominated.Alejandro Faurlin: 8A vintage Faurlin display, full of incisive passing and excellent set-piece delivery. Punishes teams that neglect to close him down.Matt Phillips: 8Definitely one of Phillips’ best performances this season. Back on the flank after his spell as a makeshift frontman, he was dangerous throughout, set up Rangers’ first goal and was denied by a goal-line clearance.Leroy Fer: 7Involved in some excellent link-up play with Austin in the first half. Performed the off-the-front role as it should be, picking up space cleverly and always supporting the striker. Almost scored with a far-post header in the second half.Junior Hoilett: 7Continued his improved form with another determined, purposeful performance. His confidence has clearly risen in recent weeks.Charlie Austin: 9The fit-again striker was the goalscoring hero for Rangers yet again. Led from the front, both when his team were on top in the first half and when the tide turned against them in the second. Had two efforts on goal after Brighton’s second before he eventually reduced the deficit. And his header from Faurlin’s corner for the late equaliser was typical Austin.Gabriele Angella: 7Sent on after Perch was helped off and had a steady game at the heart of the R’s defence, although he was beaten in the air in the build-up to the opening goal.Karl Henry: 6Worked hard in midfield after coming on for Sandro.

Ganguly stands impatient on balcony of Lord’s It is still disappointing…

first_imgTour of England in June 1996. Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid played their first match in the second Test at Lord’s. South Dhawan won the first Test at Lord’s with a draw at Lord’s. Ganguly, who reached the number three spot that day, became the backbone of the Indian innings. Rahul Dravid, who slipped to number 7, fell to a century.Also Read: Ganguly’s wife’s parents and brother Kovid; Former Indian captain on alertGanguly’s disappointment when he remembers that match 24 years ago, when Dravid missed five centuries. Ganguly scored 131 runs in 301 balls. Dravid’s unbeaten sixth wicket partnership with Ganguly stands at 70 runs. .I was out for a century but Dravid took the team forward. The next morning when Dravid reached the crease, I stood impatient on the balcony of Lord’s. Dravid’s century was a sight to behold. However, Dravid was out for 95, Ganguly said.Dravid was seen playing under-15 and Ranji Trophy matches. The band debuted together in the Garden of Eden. Throughout his career, he was able to work very closely. “I wish Dravid had scored a century with me at Lord’s,” Ganguly said.Also Read: Kovid for Bangladesh’s former cricket captain and familyDravid also recalled Ganguly’s batting. I have watched the innings for a long time since Ganguly came in at number three. It was a lesson in how to deal with English bowlers patiently at Lord’s. Ganguly was waiting for him when he got down to number seven. The innings of the innings is still a favorite – remembering Dravid’s debut.last_img read more

PIOJ Reports 1.1 Per Cent Growth for October to December

first_img The Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) is reporting that the country recorded its strongest quarterly growth out-turn for the 2017 calendar year at an estimated 1.1 per cent, between October and December. Story Highlights Dr. Henry said the out-turn for the December quarter resulted from estimated growth of 1.2 and one per cent in the goods producing and services industries, respectively. Data show that stopover arrivals from the US increased by 14.3 per cent during the review period to 368,962 persons; arrivals from Canada were up 12.6 per cent to 111,482 persons; while stopover arrivals from Europe increased by 9.2 per cent to 86,576 persons. The Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) is reporting that the country recorded its strongest quarterly growth out-turn for the 2017 calendar year at an estimated 1.1 per cent, between October and December.This follows 0.8 per cent for the July to September quarter, Director General, Dr, Wayne Henry, has said.He was speaking at the PIOJ’s quarterly media briefing at the Institute’s New Kingston head office on Tuesday, February 13.Dr. Henry said the out-turn for the December quarter resulted from estimated growth of 1.2 and one per cent in the goods producing and services industries, respectively.He told journalists that the service industry’s out-turn was driven by an estimated 15 per cent expansion in mining and quarrying, and one per cent in construction.The growth in mining and quarrying reflected higher crude bauxite and alumina production of 45.6 per cent and 11.6 per cent, respectively.Dr. Henry noted that the increase in alumina production mainly reflected the resumption of operations at the JISCO Alpart refinery in Nain, St. Elizabeth.Dr. Henry said the construction industry was supported by an increase in the value of National Housing Trust (NHT) mortgages provided as well as ongoing work on housing developments.These outcomes, he pointed out, far outweighed the contractions recorded in agriculture, forestry and fishing; and manufacturing, which declined by one per cent and 0.2 per cent respectively.The Director General noted that agriculture was constrained by above-normal rainfall during and prior to the review period.“This adversely impacted agricultural output, both with respect to hindering the recovery efforts of crops requiring a longer maturation period, as well as short-term crops, for which replanting was impeded. Information from the climate branch of the Met Service indicated that cumulative rainfall during the period January to November 2017 was 121 per cent of the 30-year mean,” he informed.Dr. Henry said, conversely, all sectors under the services industry grew, noting that hotels and restaurants led the way with an estimated 5.7 per cent.The out-turns for the other sectors saw transport, storage and communication growing by an estimated 1.2 per cent; finance and insurance services – one per cent; wholesale and retail trade, repair and installation of machinery; electricity and water supply – 0.3 per cent; and real estate, renting and business services – 0.1 per cent.Dr. Henry indicated that the out-turn for hotels and restaurants was influenced by an estimated 13.7 per cent increase in visitor arrivals from the United States, Canada and Europe.Data show that stopover arrivals from the US increased by 14.3 per cent during the review period to 368,962 persons; arrivals from Canada were up 12.6 per cent to 111,482 persons; while stopover arrivals from Europe increased by 9.2 per cent to 86,576 persons.The Director General further advised that cruise-passenger arrivals increased by 37.3 per cent, while total visitor expenditure was US$752.8 million, an increase of 17.7 per cent.Preliminary data for January 2018 show a 6.8 per cent increase in stopover arrivals and 21.3 per cent for cruise passengers.The 2017 calendar year growth out-turn is estimated at 0.5 per cent, representing the fifth consecutive year of economic growth recorded by Jamaica.The services industry is estimated to have grown by 0.8 per cent, to outweigh the 0.7 per cent contraction in the goods producing industry.“Industries recording the strongest growth during the year were hotels and restaurants, up 3.9 per cent; manufacturing, up 1.6 per cent; and construction, up one per cent,” Dr. Henry told journalists.He noted that the economic out-turn for the January to March 2018 quarter is “positive” based on the anticipated continued strengthening of activities in both the goods producing and services industries.“In light of (this), we expect real GDP (gross domestic product) for the January to March 2018 quarter to grow within the range of one to two per cent. The growth in real GDP for fiscal year 2017/18 is projected to fall within the range of 0.5 per cent to 1.5 per cent,” he pointed out.last_img read more
