Anyone can buy a tie and call it a Father's Day gift. But this year, the Sagicor Foundation used Father's Day as an opportunity for the adopt-a-school children across the island to stretch their creative muscles by creating a specially made and more meaningful greeting card for their fathers. This initiative was organised to build the self-esteem of the children as well as to shine the spotlight on the father figures who are taking their roles seriously as breadwinners. Here are some of the special moments.
