Several children at Sea Lots will be going to school
in style when the new term re-opens next week courtesy
reigning International Soca Monarch Machel Montano.
On Easter Monday, Montano s mother, Elizabeth visited
the area bearing Easter gifts for the boys and girls of
Pioneer Drive.The gifts---branded and bearing Machel s
autograph---were school bags with matching lunch bags.
They came in three designs: red, green and yellow; black
with a zebra print and a pink with purple leopard print.
The children were very happy to receive the gifts and
thanked Machel and his mother. Addressing the excited
little ones, Montano said her son, Machel was sorry that
he was unable to make it in person to deliver the gifts
because he is currently in the United States working on
songs for his movie he had just finished filming.
Since two years ago, Machel and his mother, have been
working closely with Sea Lots residents Lystra Haynes
and Pearl James on a project called Time, Love and Care.
The project is geared towards showing love to the chil-
dren of the area and motivating them to study and work
hard to achieve their goals. The group s annual event---
a four-day outreach workshop---will be held in July. There
will be visiting guest speakers from the United States.
One of the coordinators, Haynes promises it to be another
She also called on further assistance from corporate
bodies and members of the public to help in providing
lunches, rinks and snacks.

school in style
Vitra Rampersad-Blake is a resilient mother of two
who has lived with the agony of her own mother suf-
fering with cancer.
Grateful that her mother has been free of the dreaded
disease for the past 20 years, Rampersad-Blake has
always wanted to do something to ease the pain and
suffering of cancer patients but the opportunity never
presented itself until now.
On April 11, Rampersad-Blake will host a unique
event---Cut For A Cause---to show her appreciation to
individuals, primarily family and friends, who donated
their "excess hair" which will go toward making wigs
for cancer patients who are undergoing kemo-therapy.
The event takes place at Couva West Secondary School,
Balisier Street, Pt Lisas Gardens, Couva, from 11 am to
An administrative officer at Holy Faith Convent,
Couva, Rampersad-Blake, 38, is hosting Cut For A
Cause as part of the requirements for her course study
in Events Management at the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate
School of Business.
"It is a distressing experience to witness firsthand
someone who is close to you suffering from cancer, or
any serious affliction for that matter. I have always
wanted to do something, in some small way, to help
others who are suffering from cancer or are survivors.
The opportunity presented itself when I started the
course at Arthur Lok Jack. I knew right away the project
that I would plan and execute," Rampersad-Blake pointed
out in a release.
For the past several months, she has cajoled members
of her family, friends and acquaintances to donate their
"excess hair" following visits to their barber or hairdresser.
She enlisted her own hairdresser to the cause, of course.
Hair cuttings must be at least seven inches in length.
"What we are doing," she explained, "is collecting
all the hair and will send it to the Cancer Society of
T&T which, in turn, will ship it off to the United States
for processing into wigs. The wigs will then be sent to
similar organisations in other parts of the world to be
used by kemo-therapy patients."
