- Over $196M is scheduled to be given to 10, 324 students
The Government of Guyana on Wednesday July 14, 2021 began its Because We Care cash grant distribution in Region Two. For some persons who have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, suffered losses due to the recent flooding or facing other difficulties, the $19,000 per child meant a lot.
Parents of 466 students in Leguan, Region Three are now in a better position to prepare their children for the new school term.
On Saturday, they benefited from Government’s ‘Because We Care’ and the school uniform and supplies cash grants, which saw parents receiving $19,000 for each public-school child.
