The owners of La Sagesse Hotel, Petite Bacaye Hotel and
several other Ex-patriots living in Grenada, founded “Gift Grenada” in 2011 to
support primary education. Their impactful work responds directly to community
defined needs, rather than donor driven interests. Gift Grenada, school
administrators, community members and parents work closely together in
prioritizing needs, raising funds and ultimately doing the work that needs to
be done - resulting in a wide mix of assistance.
Gift Grenada has helped by constructing a playground for the
St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic School in Morne Jaloux; provided computer equipment
teaching aids and more for the Constantine Methodist school; a school feeding
program, computer equipment, workbooks and school supplies for the Corinth
Primary School; and a sorely needed fence at the Saint Anne’s Infant School in
Rose Hill thereby insuring the safety of approximately 50 students between the
ages of 3 to 7 who attend the roadside school.
