Over Three Hundred Students benefit from Rise Up Bequia Annual Book Drive.

Three hundred and fifty-six (356) students across the Island of Bequia were left with smiles from ear to ear as they grasp their packages of notebooks, copy books, pens, and pencils for the new school year.
After two days of distribution, Rise Up Bequia Inc.’s Annual Summer Book Drive 2017 was a major success. This year marks a significant increase from the 176 students that received assistance last year from the organization.
Members visited the schools and personally handed out the parcels and also held talks with the students, educating them about what the group is about and how they too can get involved in helping their community.
Funds raised from this year’s Rise Up Bequia Inc.’s Talent Expo/Saga Boy Competition went towards the purchase of the school supplies.
Rise Up Bequia would like to take this opportunity to once again thank all persons who sponsored, donated or contributed in one way or another to this event.
Next year’s show slated for the last weekend in February is geared towards raising enough funds to provide all students of Bequia with books and school supplies. We solicit and look forward to your continued generous support to ensure that our vision is realized” said the president of the organization.
Rise Up Bequia Inc. is a local registered NGO comprising of Bequia natives now in its 4th year of existence. It is a social activist group focusing on building and strengthening core ideas and practices of sustainable community development, education, agency, and outreach.
