Annual school bag drive in Soufriere rears completion
Walter Mathurin’s drive to collect bags for underprivileged children in the Soufriere area is nearing completion.
The drive, started 13 years ago, began first as a project to help students from Mathurin’s and his best friend’s former school.
“It started about 13 years ago when I got the call from my best friend, Calixtus Joseph, informing me that he was sending a barrel of school supplies to our old school and asked me if I wanted to contribute. I happily obliged,” he said.
“The following year, we collaborated on the project again; Just the 2 of us. Each year after, it’s been a Wally project; although Calixtus always contributes,” he said.
