CBI developer provides Dominica school children with free school equipment


ROSEAU, Dominica — Range Developments – a local investment and hospitality company – is helping children across Dominica with their studies by providing them with essential school equipment such as pens, notebooks and bags.

The initiative – known as the Range School Fund – will benefit 1,000 children from 30 primary and secondary schools across the island.

Due to the large scale of the operation, Range Developments has teamed up with volunteers from Portsmouth and surrounding communities including students and MV Pacific Hope to help with the packaging of the school supplies.

In addition to this, the Youth Council in Roseau will help with the actual distribution of the items to participating schools. There will be two distribution points serving schools based on their location; one in Portsmouth for the north side of the island and one in Roseau for the south side of the island. Planned dates for distribution are 23rd and 25th October respectively.

The initiative has been undertaken in partnership with the ministry of education and follows on from a similar corporate social responsibility program by Range Developments last year to provide school supplies to children.

Kamal Shehada, development director at Range Developments said: “Education is a key area of focus in our corporate social responsibility program and we are proud to be supporting this important initiative which will ensure that school children from across Dominica are well equipped for their studies.”

Range Developments hopes to build upon its social responsibility efforts by supporting other worthwhile community projects and initiatives, particularly those with a focus on education.
