The Education Ministry’s school grants initiative continued on Monday in Regions Five (Mahaica-Berbice) and Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), which saw $135 million being distributed.
The grant is being distributed under three headings – janitorial, office, and field – with $1000 per child for janitorial and $3000 for office and field needs.
