Minister of Social Cohesion, Amna Ally, has called on residents of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) to renew their resolve to fight inequality and division, even as she reiterated Government’s commitment to ensuring that every citizen is afforded a good life in Guyana.
The Minister was at the time speaking at the first ever ‘Supenaam/Good Hope Unity Fest’, which was held over the weekend in Essequibo.
According to Manager of Cosmos Promotions, Ms. Jennifer Jeffrey, the event was organised with the aim fostering unity among the young people and communities in the area.
“This event seeks to bring together persons from various ethnic groups and not ruling out religion, since my community is a diverse one, in the exhibition of cultures and talent, local produce and more. I believe this is a tangible way to reduce division among the people and to restore the pride of my community…,” Ms. Jeffrey said.
Minister Ally praised the initiative, saying that such activities are needed for the development of the young people of Guyana.
“You have demonstrated a will to be organised because in many communities we have young people who are not organised. Guyana is in good hands, the hands of the young people because you are the ones who are going to help to chart our destiny,” she said.
