President promises Baramita children internet, 600 electronic tablets


President Dr. Irfaan Ali visited the community of Baramita, Region One (Barima- Waini) on Thursday and while there, he met with hundreds of children and residents and promised them electronic tablets and internet in their school by next week.

“You have to promise me that you will stay in school, you won’t give your teachers a hard time and you will learn,” the President said as he was surrounded by the children just as he landed at Baramita.

With some of the devices also for teachers, the President said they must all capitalise on the Guyana Online Academy of Learning (GOAL) scholarship programme.

Aside from his promise to the children, the President also listened to the concerns of many residents and promised interventions soon.

There were many concerns about Venezuela’s aggressions since Baramita is a border community. As he did in other border communities he visited on Thursday, the President assured them that the government is doing all it can to keep Guyana’s sovereignty and territorial integrity intact.

He, however, told them that Guyana’s military and Police Forces will be receiving support from foreign partners. The local armed forces are expected to beef up their work even as the President said the country has sound diplomatic support.

Health concerns were also raised in the community and the President said Health Minister, Dr. Frank Anthony will organise an outreach so that the residents can get dental and other health services.

    even though I don’t presently live in Guyana, but was born there in 1960 I’m very very very much happy to see that Guyanese people have finally got a president like Dr Ali who cares about them.

    I say to all Guyanese people stand strong and proud, you have suffered enough over the past years.

    NOW is your time.. work hard and stand with your president Dr Ali always
