Linden Rotaract Club shares 50 backpacks

The Rotaract Club of Linden on Sunday distributed 50 backpacks to students as part of its fifth annual backpack distribution project, at the Linden Technical Institute (LTI).

In a press release, the group said the backpacks were distributed to students from the nursery and primary divisions. The event is part of an annual August tradition where the community-based Rotaract Club supports education through the distribution of backpacks filled with stationery to deserving students.

Five years ago the project started by distributing 12 backpacks. Today, with the help of sponsors, the Rotaractors were able to distribute 50. The recipients were selected from the community, the group said.

The Rotaract Club of Demerara joins the Rotaract Club of Linden in thanking sponsors Digicel Guyana, the Rotaract Club of Scarborough, Canada, Mark’s Foot Locker, ACVS Studio and LTI.
