Barbados: Manufacturer helping families prepare for return to school

One of Barbados’ leading manufacturing companies is forking out thousands of dollars to assist struggling families with back-to-school expenses, despite reporting a dip in business.

At the same time, some teachers have expressed a growing need for assistance due to more parents finding it increasingly difficult to even start their preparations, although classes will resume in just over a week.

On Thursday, Roberts Manufacturing Company Ltd. announced that it was providing assistance for 16 children – eight boys and eight girls – from eight schools.

During a short ceremony at Roberts Manufacturing’s Lower Estate, St Michael location, where the presentation was made to the representatives of the learning institutions, Managing Director Jason Sambrano said he was “acutely aware” of the challenges that people were facing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
