LIME Lends a Helping Hand to Dunnottar School

For more than 40 years the Dunnottar School has been a fervent advocate for the education and care of children with intellectual and physical disabilities, pushing for their acceptance and inclusion in society.

Presently, the school caters to 80 students who have benefited tremendously from its Daily Living Skills Programme. It also has a Vocational Centre and an athletics programme. Several students have gone on to represent St. Lucia at the Special Olympics, garnering medals and accolades in the process.

Recognising the great work that the school has done and the amazing aptitude of its students, LIME offered to assist the Dunnottar School Sports Committee in organising an educational tour to Martinique from 3-10 July for 15 student athletes and five teachers. The main aim of the excursion was to help the students become more independent when travelling. LIME financed the air fares for three of the students.

LIME’s donation is a further demonstration of the company’s commitment to focus its contributions increasingly towards sports and education, particularly in the schools. So far this year, LIME has provided tens of thousands of dollars in financial, telecommunications and logistical support to various schools island-wide, to assist with their annual sporting events and other activities.

LIME Marketing & Communications, Sharlene Jn. Baptiste, said, “As a company, we feel duty bound to do whatever we can to make the students’ lives just a little better and give them a moment of glory so that people can see their abilities and the ways they are like the rest of us.”
