SALCC Interact Students Feed The Homeless And Underprivileged In Castries

On Friday, October 27th, a group of students from the Interact Club of the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College took to the streets of Downtown Castries to make a significant difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

Organized under the banner of the “Creole Good Turn” initiative, these dedicated young individuals prepared, packaged, and distributed hearty Creole meals to the homeless and underprivileged persons in the area.

Amidst the rain, these students demonstrated an extraordinary sense of community and service, embodying the true spirit of compassion and empathy.

Their initiative not only provided nourishment to those in need but also served as a shining example of selflessness and altruism.

In a world often dominated by self-interest, the actions of these young students serve as a reminder that there is immense power in the collective will to do good.

The event was not just about feeding the hungry; it was a testament to the potential of youth-led community service initiatives.

By taking the initiative to address the pressing issue of hunger in their community, these students have shown that positive change begins at the grassroots level.

Community service, especially when initiated and executed by young people, plays a pivotal role in shaping a better society.

It fosters a sense of responsibility, empathy, and civic engagement, instilling values that are fundamental to building a compassionate and inclusive community.

The event also aligns perfectly with the principles of Rotary International, an organization known for its commitment to humanitarian service. The students’ dedication to the cause echoes Rotary’s motto of “Service above Self.” Their willingness to actively contribute to society exemplifies the Rotary spirit and reinforces the importance of youth involvement in creating a positive impact.

“We are incredibly proud of these young students who have not only recognized the needs of their community but have also taken tangible steps to address them,” said Interactor Advisor at Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, Mrs. Tracy Pilgrim-George. “Their efforts showcase the potential of youth-led initiatives and underscore the importance of nurturing a sense of social responsibility among the younger generation.”

The Creole Good Turn event stands as a testament to the power of collective action and the positive change that can be achieved when communities come together. As we celebrate these students’ remarkable achievement, let us also reflect on the importance of supporting and encouraging similar initiatives that promote a culture of compassion, inclusion, and service.
