Over 100 children benefit from CANI distribution programme

news 20171009 3The Come Alive Network Inc (CANI) yesterday executed the second leg of their Shoes and Stationery distribution. The team went to different communities around Guyana, such as Mocha Arcadia Community, Enmore, Demerara- Mahaica and Berbice. A total of 190 students aged between four to 15 were recipients of school supplies.

Come Alive Network Inc (CANI) is a non-governmental and not- for- profit organisation which was established to actively support youth development.
CANI’s entire operation is managed by a group of diverse young people.
In addition, an annual shoe drive is hosted whereby the organisation visits underprivileged communities and shares shoes and supplies.
This has been an ongoing project since 2014, and has seen more than 1000 students benefitting from this venture.
Some communities that benefitted so far from the organisation are: Charity, Enmore, Mocha, Linden, North Ruimveldt, as well as communities in Berbice.
The volunteers spend time engaging community members and invoke through Guyanese culture of ‘one-one dutty does build dam’, when it embarks on fundraising for the project.
