South East Fishing Association
(SEFA) has expanded its investment
in community development with the
launch of a project aimed at helping
primary school students from Mayaro
and environs fulfil their potential.
President of SEFA, Fenton Straker
gave an overview of the initiative: "SEFA
has assisted a number of disadvantaged
people from communities across south-
east Trinidad over the years but we
wanted to focus on the children this
"We worked with the various school
administrations and PTAs and decided
to assist the ten neediest children in
five primary schools across the region.
We are providing financial assistance
to purchase uniforms, shoes and books
so that they can focus their energies
on their education."
The project started off at the Ortoire
RC Primary School on October 31 when
executive officers of SEPA presented a
cheque for $10,512.45 to the school s
principal, Razina Maraj.
Mayaro Government, St Thomas RC,
Mafeking Government and Guayagua-
yare RC are the other schools which
will benefit from the initiative.
"This gesture by SEFA has a deep
significance to these children and their
families. The association is demon-
strating that they are appreciated and
supported. When the scope of the proj-
ect was decided, each teacher chose
one child from their class, so the ben-
efits are being felt school-wide.
"Through this initiative, the kids are
getting a boost, not only in terms of
their education, but also of boosting
their self-esteem and confidence," Maraj
explained in a release.
Established in 2004, SEFA currently
has a membership of more than 150
and serves a dual function of repre-
senting fisherfolk of the south-east
region, while contributing to the welfare
of residents of the various communities.
Over the years, SEFA has assisted fam-
ilies with home repairs and bereavement
assistance, in addition to upgrading
Mervin Sendall, vice-president/sec-
retary, SEFA, explained their renewed
vision, "Over the years we ve grown as
an organisation and we wanted to
extend our support, especially to the
children who are the keepers of our
community s future. This is just the
start to what we hope to achieve."
Ermin Bayne, a trustee of the Ortoire
RC PTA, was moved by the donation.
"Because of their financial situations,
some parents are not able to purchase
all the books and school supplies for
their children, placing them at a dis-
advantage. This gesture by SEFA will
place these students these kids on a
firmer footing where their education
and self-development is concerned,"
Student Omesh Rai expressed his
gratitude for the assistance. "We want
to thank Mr Straker and the other per-
sons at SEFA for helping us and the
other primary school children. They
made us feel special, like Christmas
came early, and we promise to work
hard and make them all proud by doing
good in school," said Omesh, as his sis-
ter, Amisha, nodded in agreement.
SEFA helps primary school students fulfil potential
Marilyn Cassimere, Public Relations officer of the South East Fishing Association, presents a cheque to
principal of Ortoire RC Primary School, Razina Maraj, to assist needy students. Sharing in the happy moment
are Ermin Bayne, left, Ortoire RC PTA trustee, Joan Frederick, Ortoire RC teacher, Marvin Sendall, centre,
SEFA vice-president and secretary, and Fenton Straker, SEFA president.
