The children of the President’s Village at Port Glaud have received a consignment of clothes, learning materials, stationeries, games and toys on Wednesday morning from Hamburg based, Seychellois Tour Operator.
The donation was handed over to the Village Manager, Ms. Brigitte Balette by Mr. Kidd Lavigne, the Managing Director of Lavigne Reisen, in the presence of his wife and the Chief Executive Officer of the Jj Spirit Foundation, Ms. Idith Alexander.
Mr. Lavigne explains that he has worked with some of his clients in Germany, many of whom visit Seychelles regularly to collect the items for the President’s Village. The consignment was shipped to the Jj Spirit Foundation in Seychelles which facilitated the entry and transportation to the village.
The CEO of the Jj Spirit Foundations says it is always a pleasure for the foundation to collaborate with like-minded organisations and individuals who want to make a positive difference in the lives of the youths of Seychelles.
The donation comes almost a year after Mr. Lavigne and his wife visited by village just out of curiosity and discussed with the village staff about their needs.
Both Mr. Lavigne and Ms. Alexander have asked the children to focus on their studies, have the right attitude and be disciplined so that they can become responsible citizens.
The staff has welcomed the donation saying these are things that they need for the children.
