The Tobago Cays Marine Park (TCMP) is delighted to announce its contribution of EC$2,000 to four students from the beautiful community of Mayreau, located within the marine park. These deserving students have successfully completed their Primary school education and are now stepping into the realm of secondary education.
Each student will receive a cash contribution of EC$500 to assist them in purchasing essential school items, ensuring they are well-equipped to make the most of their Secondary school experience. We believe that investing in education is investing in the potential of these young individuals, empowering them to become future leaders and guardians of our precious marine environment.
As the sole inhabited island within the Tobago Cays Marine Park, Mayreau holds a special place in the hearts of all those who cherish the preservation and prosperity of this extraordinary natural sanctuary. The TCMP recognizes the significance of education in shaping the future of communities, and it is with great pleasure that we support Mayreau’s youths in their educational journey.
Furthermore, the TCMP is looking towards collaborating with the Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) operating on Mayreau to establish a scholarship program exclusively for the island’s students. By joining hands with these organizations, we aim to provide more significant and sustained support to Mayreau’s educational pursuits in the coming year.
In a statement, Lesroy Noel, Manager of the TCMP said “The Tobago Cays Marine Park is proud to support the four Mayreau students as they embark on their Secondary school journey. This contribution is a testament to our commitment to education and nurturing young minds within our beloved marine park. We look forward to working hand-in-hand with the NGOs on Mayreau to launch a comprehensive scholarship program, which will further empower the students of this unique island community. Together, we can build a brighter future for Mayreau and continue to safeguard the unparalleled natural beauty of the Tobago Cays Marine Park”
