More than 150 children in North Central Clarendon have benefited from a back-to-school initiative spearheaded by state minister in the Ministry of National Security, Pearnel Charles Jr, in partnership with telecommunications firm FLOW. The camp was facilitated by trained teachers from nearby schools as well as several community members who volunteered their talents to assist with the personal development and behavioural modification programme for the minors.

FLOW presented back-to-school supplies as well as grants to several needy children who attended the camp.

Speaking at the brief presentation ceremony, held on August 18 at the Summerfield Community Centre, Courtney Bell, community programmes manager at the FLOW Foundation, commended the facilitators on the two-week programme which focused on several areas of personal development and empowerment.
