Dominica: Melissa Skerrit Foundation donates backpacks, scholarships to students

Melissa Poponne-Skerrit has described her second donation to students within a period of two weeks as a small down payment on a better future for Dominica.

On August 27, 2020, in her capacity as the member of Parliament for the Roseau Central Constituency, Poponne Skerrit donated 91 laptops to secondary school and college students.

A week later on September 5, 2020, through The Melissa Skerrit Foundation Back-to-School Programme, she donated 1600 backpacks containing school supplies and 70 scholarships, to deserving students on the island.

The businesswoman-turned politician gave some useful advice to the students.
