E-Networks supports Ministry’s ‘Wish Upon a Star’ Initiative
E-Networks Inc. – Guyana’s only locally-owned telecommunications provider – today presented the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Human Services and Social Protection, Ms Shannielle Hoosein-Outar, with a donation of GY$500,000 towards their ‘Wish Upon a Star’ Initiative.
This initiative, conceptualised by Minister of Human Services and Social Security, Dr Vindhya Persaud, aimed to fulfil the dreams of children with special needs, between the ages of four and fifteen, during the festive season. These needs included those living with disabilities, children who would have experienced some traumatic or psychological incident in their life, lost their parents and do not have guardians or caregivers, and never had the opportunity to enjoy that one gift that could make them incredibly happy.
E-Networks Marketing Coordinator, Ashley John, lauded the Ministry for its worthwhile project during the season of giving. She commented, “We know a child’s circumstances or that of their parent/guardian might hinder them from enjoying Christmas, so we think it’s a brilliant initiative by the Ministry to bring joy during this festive season. As a local company, we are always thrilled to show our support to improve the lives of Guyanese, especially the youth in need.”
Accepting on behalf of the Ministry, PS Mrs Hoosein-Outar said that, “This donation will go a long way in making the Christmas wishes of less fortunate children come true.” In crafting the initiative, Dr Persaud had especially considered how children generally look forward to Christmas time and how granting their special wishes can profoundly impact them. E-Networks is exceedingly pleased to participate in this project and extends its very best wishes for a joyous season to all those involved in this worthy venture.
