The Rotary Community Corp of Basseterre (RCCB), launched its inaugural Back to School drive on August 19, 2018. This initiative gave the community-driven group an opportunity to give back by providing school supplies to the nation’s youth who may otherwise not have all the necessary supplies for the 2018-2019 school year.
As this was the group’s first back to school drive, RCCB developed a criteria that stipulated that each team member must nominate two students and provide information as to why each child should be selected. The group would then choose one child from each person who would receive the package. The children were gifted with exercise books, pens, pencils and rulers.
