Offering mental health education and counselling programs along with skills training, the Guyana Foundation will be opening one of its ‘Sunrise Centres’ in Georgetown.
The Charitable organization opened its first ‘Sunrise Centre’ at Zorg-En-Vlygt, Essequibo, Region Two, to offer support to families across the Essequibo Coast.
In a statement on Tuesday, the foundation said its training sessions along with community renewal programs have touched thousands of lives in a positive way since the organization was established in 2013.
It was noted that the Founder of the Guyana Foundation, Supriya Singh-Bodden, CCH, will travel shortly to the United Kingdom, to establish a presence of the organization there for persons who have expressed an interest in contributing to the work of the Foundation.
The statement quoted Singh-Bodden as saying, “Guyana needs unity, Guyana needs healing, it is clear that if a roadmap is not found to sincerely and genuinely create this way forward, our communities will continue to be troubled no matter what any politician says.”
She also raised the recent incident of the mother who stabbed her toddler to death, noting that it speaks to “more of this level of dysfunction in our communities.”
The Foundation’s work has gained international support from Universities, Scotiabank, other global Foundations, Rotary International.
The Guyana Foundation seeks through its work to alleviate poverty and reduce suicide.
