Share post:

The Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Barbados Charity has donated 200 masks to the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training, to protect staff who returned to school to facilitate Class Four students preparing for the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Entrance Examination.

A release from the Ministry stated that it has been “very strong” on promoting the safety of all school staff, and by extension the students preparing for exams, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Director of the Charity, Leslie Weekes, explained that the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Barbados Charity and the Jose Y Jose Group of companies recognised and accepted their social responsibility.

He also asked other corporate entities to continue to support Barbados and Government in these trying times, which have been further complicated by novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Weekes also spoke about a recent recycling initiative called the Pink Bin Recycling Programme which has been rolled out in ten communities so far. For more information, visit: (BGIS)
