Arya Samaj Port Mourant empowerment centre moving ahead
The vision of the Arya Samaj Humanitarian Mis-sion for reducing poverty and social problems affecting Berbicians is closer to becoming a reality as construction of the Empower-ment and Training Centre moves apace.
The centre, located at Ankerville, Port Mourant, Corentyne will target school dropouts, single parents and victims of domestic violence among others.
Construction of the $17M centre commenced on September 29 and by April 10 next year the first batch of trainees would also be admitted. That date would coincide with the anniversary of the Arya Samaj in India.
