Last Friday, January 23, Country Manager Angus Steele handed over the books to acting Principal of the school Descima Alexander-Hamilton. The books are entitled: “The Power of a Dream”, written by Grenadian Quamme Joseph, and “Be Inspired”, written by Vincentian Dr. Jules Ferdinand.

On handing over the books, Steele commented: “These books are written by Caribbean writers sharing their Caribbean experience. LIME is a true Caribbean company, so there are synergies here. LIME has made a commitment in our manifesto to make the Caribbean a better place, so we believe in promoting our Caribbean talents. We have recently made a Dominican national into a Caribbean millionaire, so we are well on our way in creating that better place for our Caribbean people. We hope that this donation will be used in the school’s Library, and the students can identify with the experiences shared in the books.”

On accepting the books, Alexander-Hamilton urged other corporate companies to come on board as LIME did and assist the schools. “These students have many social challenges and there are many things that we need at the school to improve the quality of service we offer to our students. The students here are good students who need lots of support. The books came at an opportune time as we are in the process of developing our Library stock,” said Alexander-Hamilton.

LIME has promised in its manifesto that in making better Caribbean Communities, the company will focus its sponsorships in education, sport and culture.
