Thousands of vouchers distributed by SUGP
Organizers of the 2022 School Uniform Grant Programme are reporting that a total of 8,854 vouchers have been distributed to beneficiaries as of 4th July, 2022.
That figure is expected to rise significantly as the new school year approaches and parents and guardians make preparation for their children to return to classrooms.
Each voucher issued is redeemed for a regular pair of uniform at select vendors across the island.
Supervisor of the SUGP, Tanesha Mckenzie-James is expressing satisfaction at the smooth execution of the programme. She said the intention is to have beneficiaries complete the process within a short period of time and she is pleased that the employees are living up to expectations in offering excellent customer service to people visiting the Multi-Purpose Cultural and Exhibition Centre, venue for the SUGP.
Mckenzie-James is informing the general public that in order for new students to be registered with the programme, a copy their birth certificate or passport information must be presented, along with an acceptance letter from the school or the school report for the third term.
Additionally, the parent or guardian must present a government issued photo identification card.
If application is made to the Ministry of Education and Sports for transfers, the SUGP should not be accessed until a decision is returned.
The 2022 School Uniform Grant Programme (SUGP) ends on Friday 2nd September.
