(ZIZ News) — On Wednesday, Operation Future was presented with a cheque, valued at EC$5000, during a handing over ceremony at the St. Johnston Community Centre.
Team Inception, organisers of the Inception Fete, delivered on its promise of donating a portion of the proceeds from the December 27th event.
Head of Marketing for Inception, Ermilin Sebastian, who chaired the ceremony, said Inception contributes in a holistic way to the development of St. Kitts-Nevis.
“Much like Inception Fete, this organisation has too evolved. It has seen an increase in membership where it can boast members from all walks of life. Additionally, it has developed some remarkable programmes in St. Kitts and Nevis, to name a few, “Discovery Club” for primary school, the “Back against the Wall” for secondary schools, and the in the community programmes, the Creative Youth Academy and my personal favourite, Prison Rehabilitation through Music and Art. So with these great contributions, it was almost a no brainer for us when we decided to partner with this organisation. After all, Inception Fete is not only about the fun and the fete, it’s also about our social responsibility,” Sebastian explained.
Police Constable, Lauston Percival accepted the cheque on Operation Future’s behalf.
He said, “I just want to express my appreciation and great thanks to Team Inception for partnering with Operation Future. Operation Future, when we started out 10 years back, well from next month, I didn’t expect Operation Future to reach where it is right now. The aim was basically to let’s go to the schools and talk to the children about social ills but here we are today. We have achieved so much and we could only achieve with the assistance from persons like Team Inception.”
Operation Future, according to its website www.sknoperationfuture.com, was initiated by members of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force to develop an interactive programme beginning in the school system.
It seeks to educate children about the dangers of crime, violence and drugs and to expand the image of a police officer from a simple enforcement figure to a friend, mentor and confidant.
