In June 2015 we awarded our 5th annual scholarships to students at the Tucker-Clarke Primary School here on St. Kitts. Our goal is to expand the reach of the scholarships beyond one school to, hopefully, all primary schools within St. Kitts and Nevis. Therefore, our Board of Trustees has been exploring various fundraising initiatives.
Our first proposed fundraising initiative is a dinner and show dubbed “An Evening with Paul Keens-Douglas – Scholarship Fundraiser” to be held on Saturday April 9, 2016 at the St. Kitts Marriott Royal Ballroom. Mr Keens-Douglas is the Caribbean’s #1 storyteller, one of our finest entertainers and also a staunch advocate for youth education and development. His calibre of entertainment as well as his known support for cultural and community enrichment meshes with our Fund’s overall goals to encourage and recognize community and civic involvement.
Tickets are available at a cost of EC$150 from Plush Accessories (Cayon Street) and by calling 663-8371 or 664-8055.
We do hope you will be able to join us at this fundraising event.
In addition, please note that our 2016 scholarship application window is now open. We look forward to receiving another great set of applications from our nation’s young scholars.
