Foreign Brand Name Outlet giving back

It doesn’t have to be Christmas to show love and give. And young entrepreneur Quency Lewis, of Foreign Brand Name Outlet, has been proving this as he continues to provide school children with the tools to assist in their education.{{more}}

Last Monday, the first day of the new school year, Lewis, a small businessman, travelled to the Barrouallie Government School and presented teacher Joy Haynes with pencils, exercise books and a book bag for students. According to Lewis, “It hurts me to hear the cries of parents who do not have the necessary funds to buy all the school gear for their children, and I am trying to make sure that every child is outfitted with the tools necessary to progress at school. At the same time, I see this as an opportunity to assist in our Education Revolution.”

Headteacher Vedette Bulze and teacher Haynes expressed their thanks at the gesture, especially since people tend to forget the rural schools. The small businessman says he has been donating supplies to the schools in the town area, but he decided to reach out to the rural areas this year. “I am from town, but a lot of rural people, especially from the Leeward area, have been supporting my businesses over the years, so this is an ideal opportunity to show my thanks by giving something back to that community.”

Lewis, who indicated that he has bigger plans come next school year, started this project a few years ago while operating his passenger van “Foreign”, and his goal is to see more children who can least afford these school items benefit from his project. (JK)
