PHILIPSBURG:— According to Fifteen-year-old Learning Unlimited student Ki-Mani Olivacce, Minister of Education and Youth Affairs Silveria Jacobs has endorsed his school supplies drive for students in need on St. Maarten. Olivacce and his team met with the Minister last week to brief her on the project at which time they received her encouragement and support.
Assisted by Jodecia Lamonte and Kendecia David, Olivacce says he is simply trying to apply what his parents have always taught him; to share and help whenever he can.
The back to school drive seeks to inspire the private sector and individual citizens to donate the most necessary and useful school items. These include but are not limited to agendas, 3-ring binders, backpacks, colored pencils, pens/pencils, dividers, folders, glue, erasers, highlighters, calculators, notebooks ect.
The team hopes to have enough items collected about a week before school re-opens on August 18 so that the distribution phase can commence and selected students have what they need to start the school year equipped.
