Castries, October 12th – The Daren Sammy Foundation which officially launched with a grand, black-tie, fundraising Gala on August 10th 2016, is well on its way to fulfill one of its major objectives: empowering the youth.
Often dubbed, the Inspirational Leader, Sammy and his team began the first leg of the DSF School Tour on Monday 10th October 2016. “What do you want to achieve?” Sammy asked the student body of the Gros Islet Secondary School, “What I found out is that, in achieving your goals you must know how to set them.” He continued, before relaying his 5 Step Plan to Goal Setting.
Sammy further imparted, with the appreciative audience, what inspired him to become the first St Lucian to make the male West Indies Cricket Team, and to conclude, he gifted Official Daren Sammy Foundation Items to deserving ‘Champions of Gros Islet Secondary School’.
The Daren Sammy Foundation hopes that the planned school tour leaves a positive mark on students by giving them the motivation to excel not just at school but in life with sheer determination. By stressing on the importance of setting goals, planning how to achieve them, and by using his own success as an example, Sammy hopes that this is the start of a big shift towards the attitude of the youth in regards to their future.
The DSF School Tour will progress to the Monchy Combined and Gros Islet Primary School, and will then resume after Sammy returns from Bangladesh and Pakistan.
The Daren Sammy Foundation will also like to announce that there will be a LIVE viewing of a short but enlightening video which speaks a bit about Daren, via its Official Facebook page on Friday 14th October 2016 from 9pm; a LIVE Chat will also follow. The Foundation’s official merchandise can be purchased at Dive St. Lucia (Rodney Bay Marina) or Scotts’ Sports & Awards (Baywalk Mall/Coral Street, Castries). All proceeds will go towards the Foundation.
