The government’s scholarship programme, Guyana Online Academy of Learning (GOAL) was on Saturday introduced in Region Three.
The outreach was led by Minister of Education Priya Manickchand and Minister within the Ministry of Public Works, Deodat Indar, at the Leonora Synthetic Track and Field Facility. Scores of young people dominated the audience at the brief ceremony where Manickchand told the gathering that education brings a sense of independence and dignity, especially to young men and women. “Anything that allows you to be able to earn for yourselves, to be able to look after yourself and your children… grab it,” she urged. While adding, “There is no better feeling of dignity and pride than to be able to look after yourself and your family. Any opportunity you get to further your study that will help you to earn better, grab it, like this one.”
