Hon. Lindsay Grant says his ultimate goal as a minister of government is to build capacity, particularly among the Nation’s youth.
A successful businessman and Attorney, Grant said he wants to see more nationals of St. Kitts and Nevis become successful which will enable them to provide for their families.
“I say in my five years, if the only thing I accomplish in five years is to make sure we bring the capacity of people up, move them up one notch of the ladder, I think I would have been successful, that’s what I want to do to make sure as you say, rather than people sitting down the road liming, we have things for them to engage them in meaningful purposes so that they can be independent, stand on their own two feet and move forward in terms of supporting their families. That is what I am mostly interested about,” he explained.
Minister Grant wants nationals of St. Kitts and Nevis to capitalise on education and training opportunities when they become available.
“Sometimes there are a lot of scholarships come up. People have to take advantage of them. A lot of training comes up, people have to take advantage of them and my job is to make sure that people know when all these things come up, these training and these certifications and all these different things come up, my job is to make sure people know because I’ve always said we need to build the capacity of people, get people from one level to the next level,” Grant said.
This week, Minister Grant hosted two town hall meetings in his constituency.
