First Lady, Sandra Granger, yesterday, met with members of the Covenant Home for Children, a United States-based charity, which is registered in California and focuses on the homeless, runaway, abandoned, abused, trafficked, or exploited youth of Guyana.

A release from the Ministry of the Presidency said that board members, Pastor Walter Seetal,  Lavone Seetal,  Marva Langevine and  Samantha Gale attended what the First Lady called an exploratory meeting to determine possible areas of partnership.

The organisation, which is currently in the process of registering as a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Guyana shared its plans of opening a Children’s Home.

The release said that the four-member team has met with Head of the Childcare and Protection Agency, Ann Greene to discuss the needs as it relates to homeless and other vulnerable children in Guyana.

The First Lady said, “I am very pleased that Pastor Seetal has already made contact with the child services department to find out all the rules and regulations regarding setting up a home for children.”
