LEADING THE WAY IN PRIVATE
TERTIARY EDUCATION SINCE 1984
Yes. I know your head is still steaming,
in the post-September 7 reboot.
Here is how you can cool down, love up
and show your true republican stripes and
remind yourself that country comes first.
This has nothing, mercifully, to do with
politics, ethnicity, or religion and everything
to do with what s in your wallets and your
lovely rosy hearts.
Want to change the world? Help a child.
Sounds corny but you know it s true. My
favourite charitable organisation The Children s
Ark has a big one for you---an opportunity
to do good and feel right, without lifting a
On October 23, at the Hyatt, the non-
profit organisation is hosting a fundraiser
dinner for about 500 guests. I could tell you
about the cocktail reception followed by a
three-course menu which includes two glasses
of wine, and the top-drawer entertainment
(David Bereaux, 3 Canal and Natalia Dopwell).
And that the President, who is the patron of
the organisation, will be there. Or that there
will be a door prize.
But the best part of the story is that the
October event will raise money for a child
trafficking awareness and education project
to be launched next year. Oh yes, child traf-
ficking is a reality; no head-in-the-sand
escape for you, dear readers. So here is how
you can be a good human being. The Ark is
inviting corporate citizens (don t you love
that description?) to sponsor tables of 10
guests at the cost of $10,000 a table. Stop
shrieking. It takes money to rescue the future.
als and civic organisations
can also leap right in with
their cheque books too.
Every penny goes where
it is supposed to. The Ark
has no secretary, office,
or employees. The
president is Simone de
la Bastide, whose
Michael de la
Bastide is also on the board. The other directors include
former First Lady Dr Jean Ramjohn Richards, attorney
Vicki Assevero Mottley; businesswoman Dhisha Moor-
jani; and ob-gyn Dr K Achong-Low, who is the vice
president. The projects they have successfully under-
taken are really worthwhile causes---a new $600,000
30-seater bus for Goodwill Industries; books and edu-
cational tools for a pre-school in Beetham; equipment
for hippotherapy camps in Tobago and in Diego Martin;
and a sports clinic at Hell Yard, Beetham, in conjunction
with the Daren Ganga Foundation, with able support
from the police and army.
Here s a heartwarmer: at one Saturday sports session,
a little boy named Akim peeped through a fence and
asked what was taking place. Told it was a cricket and
football clinic, he grew even more curious. His eyes
sparkled. "That is Daren Ganga there?" he asked. Yes,
indeed. "I in!" he cried, and through the fence he
climbed, into the clinic and has been making good
batting progress since.
We have to be our own heroes. Grown-ups have got
things mucked up a bit but we can put the experience
to work, and try to do better tomorrow. See you in
October looking your philanthropic best.
