Guyana's first Health Hub and Health and Family Life Education classroom
Welcome to what is considered Guyana's first Health Hub and Health and Family Life Education (HFLE) classroom!
Last Friday, Peace Corps Volunteer Liz, her students, teachers and other stakeholders commissioned the hub at the local secondary school.
Making remarks at the commissioning ceremony, Chief Education Officer (ag), Ingrid Trotman, said the classroom was an important achievement, not only for the school, but the surrounding community.
Headteacher of the school, Fay Gittens, extended the school’s gratitude to all those who supported the project, noting that it will go a long way in helping the students, as the needs of children expand way beyond just the fulfillment of academic goals.
The project cost approximately G$846, 000 and received funding with a US$2500 grant from the Let Girls Learn (LGL) grant, as well as funds raised by the school’s Parent teachers’ Association (PTA) and local sponsors.
