The Daren Sammy Foundation (DSF) has awarded twenty two (22) students with scholarships for the upcoming school year 2023/2024 through its scholarship program which was held at the Conference Room of the Finance Administrative Centre located at Pointe Seraphine.
This year, the foundation has joined forces with Republic Bank EC through its PMAD Program to recognize and reward exceptional students who demonstrate dedication, hard work, and a profound passion for sports.
“We’re proud to be able to, once again, make the difference in the lives of many deserving students, for the upcoming school year.” Said Mrs. Sammy, Vice President of the Daren Sammy Foundation. “I believe that this year’s scholarship holders, some returning from last year, all mirror the dedication and discipline of our Founder, Daren Sammy, and it is our pleasure to help them achieve their goals.”
Covering tuition fees, school textbooks, bags and uniforms, the Daren Sammy Foundation Scholarship rewards hardworking students from low-income families. Recipients are selected from a strict criterion such as applicants belonging to a sports club or participation in extra-curricular activity and a 75% passing grade.
In attendance was Honourable Kenson Casimir, Minister responsible for Youth and Sports, who addressed the scholarship recipients.
The Daren Sammy Foundation, a philanthropic organization founded by International Cricketer and Saint Lucian, Daren Sammy, is on a mission to serve Saint Lucia by developing its youth through Sports & Education.
Though the Foundation cannot extend its reach to everyone, the Daren Sammy Foundation endeavors to better Saint Lucia’s future, one child at a time, and to inspire everyone to give back to their community.
