  1. Every day I give God thanks for our visionary leader Gaston Browne, for wasn’t it for him we would have been able to quenched the learning thirst of our people. People who never before had the opportunity to get tertiary education with little effort financially are now taking full advantage of this. And I also thank God for Mrs Paula Lee for spearheading this program. Paula you are doing a marvelous job. I’m not to long we will have the majority of our population having a tertiary education.
    The old African proverb “If you educate a man you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate a family (nation)”
    And the Chinese Proverb:
    “If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.”

    Without a vision the people perish
