ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- With some schools lacking basic supplies and both teachers and parents having to delve into their own pockets to make conditions comfortable for learning, no doubt the noble initiative by Delta Petroleum (Caribbean) Limited to donate monies to schools in the Virgin Islands would be considered a welcome initiative, even though the funds are intended for graduation purposes.

During this week Delta Petroleum would be issuing some 26 schools, both public and private, with a cheque for $500.

This assistance would become an annual gesture, according to Regional General Manager of Delta Petroleum, Mr Bevis A. Sylvester.

“It’s basically for the 26 schools in the BVI, public and private, and each school will be given $500, with the total package being $13,500.”

Mr Sylvester said the gesture is to encourage the students and to help the schools out financially towards their graduation.

“This is going to be an annual support to all the schools in the territory. All the cheques will be going out to the schools this week,” Mr Sylvester told Virgin Islands News Online.

Meanwhile, all schools in the region in which Delta Petroleum operates will be receiving similar donations.

Delta Petroleum (Caribbean) Limited is one of the unrivalled corporate entities in the Virgin Islands when it comes to giving back to the community.

Efforts to get a reaction from Acting Chief Education Officer Jillian Douglas-Phillip and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education and Culture Dr Marcia Potter were not successful up to publication time.

He treat his employees like family and look out for them. I go to Delta mainly because of the nice smile and treatment I get from them, I always feel better after talking with the attendants they are a good bunch.

      Great Leader? When did he become a great leader? Did he give back any of the money he took from Tax payers? Did he serve time for his crime? Was he honest about the situation concerning Customs? Let him be transparent and show the public just how much he gives to St Kitts, and the BVI Schools. He ran for politics and as soon as the election was over he went back to making his money. He does not give a damn about the community he lives in. These people feel good about making a million dollars in our communities and giving back 10 cents!!!

    This is awesome - Govt doesn't give a stuff about our youth and schools so the private sector needs to step up for our children. Great job Delta and thank you!
