The government is prepared to work with all persons interested in helping to develop and change the lives of the less fortunate and vulnerable. This is according to Senior Minister of Social Protection Volda Lawrence.Minister Lawrence was speaking at the commissioning ceremony of a new $38M skills training centre and counseling facility which was officially opened on Sunday August 8, 2015 at Area Q, Ankerville,Cheap Jerseys From China, Port Mourant, Corentyne, Berbice.The multimillion dollar undertaking represents the latest venture by the New Jersey Arya Samaj Mandir (NJASM). The facility is being dubbed a Humanitarian Mission Skills Training and Counseling Centre which is equipped with facilities to cater to skills training for the vulnerable in the Berbice area.Among the facilities the new centre will include is a welding and wood joinery shop, which together with the other areas of training will help prepare the vulnerable for the world of work.Another planned phase for the facility will see an old folks home being established in a second building, which is still to be constructed in the not too distant future.This is according Chief Executive Officer of the organization, Pandit Suresh Sugrim, who is the founder of NJASM.In addition to Minister Lawrence,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, also delivering remarks at the auspicious event was Charge’ D Affaires of the United States Embassy,Wholesale Jerseys From China, Mr Bryan Hunt, and Minister within the Ministry of Finance, Mr Jaipaul Sharma, among others.Both Lawrence and Hunt promised to work with agencies that are committed to break the cycle of poverty through education.Lawrence in commending the NJASM Humanitarian Mission for taking on the empowering initiative said that she was delighted to learn that one of the main goals of the project was to alleviate poverty through the provision of social services and the promotion of education and empowering vulnerable groups.However, she noted that her Ministry too sees the difficulty people face and recognizes the importance of partnerships in helping to address those challenges. “I urge you to continue your work of reaching out to those who are less fortunate; those who have been overcome by social ills, tragedy or ill health…We need your help to restore families, to sensitise and educate our men about the way to treat women and about the need to embrace woman’s changing roles,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping,” Lawrence noted.She said the provision of social services is a great challenge because often the results are not quantifiable or easy to measure.The Social Protection Minister also stressed the need for diligence and commitment if social services efforts are to realize success.“As a government, we will continue to strive for the improvement in the quality of social services and greater social protection. I wish to extend a hand to all those who are willing to partner with us for human development and to take this opportunity to remind us all that everyone has a role to play in achieving the desirable society we wish to see.”Hunt on a similar note said that the United States is also committed to supporting efforts being made to break the cycle of poverty through empowerment and education. He too theorized that Governments cannot do it alone, thus civil society has a critical role to play in addressing social ills plaguing societies. “We support the outstanding work by organisations like the Humanitarian Mission of New Jersey in trying to bring about grassroots involvement by citizens in the United States and in Guyana in order to make a difference at the community level.”Hunt also underscored the importance of investing in education which he said is the driving force of all social and economic development.Meanwhile,Wholesale Jerseys From China, Region Six Chairman, Mr David Armogan, in brief remarks explained that there were many challenges which the local chapter of the NJASM Humanitarian Mission had to overcome. He explained that efforts were deliberately engaged to deter the realization of the Centre.  “In Guyana today there are many social and environmental problems that face us and even so we have more organisations established to deal these problems but the problems still seem to be going unabated. I believe this is because many more organisations are involved in looking at the problem rather than putting resources to find solutions to the problem…” added Armogan.He said if one looks at the amount of studies that have been done and the amount of papers that have been presented, in terms of social problems, and compare them with programmes where money is involved to empower persons by training them and giving them life skills to provide alternative employment, “one would find that we are lacking.”“That is why today I am extremely happy that the Humanitarian Mission of New Jersey has taken this initiative to do exactly that which is not so prevalent in our community; that is empowering our people.”Among the prominent attendees at the Commissioning of the Centre were: Chairperson of the Teaching Service Commission, Mrs Leila Ramson, former Chairman of Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL), Yesu Persaud and Chairman of the Childcare and Protection Agency, Ms Ann Greene.
