Haile Selassie I High School, St. Andrew, Jamaica

DARC has initiated a fund-raising drive for The Haile Selassie I School in Jamaica. This is just the beginning of what DARC is about, by our deeds shall we be judged.  Teach a man how to fish and you feed him for life. Everyone deserves that basic right to a good education.

DARC High School Scholarship

for Student at Haile Selassie I High School

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Tena Yistilign;

It gives me great pride to be here today, at this institution that was donated to Jamaica by HIM Haile Sellassie 1st. It is also an honor that I have been given an opportunity to represent DARC at such a huge occasion!

First to the Guidance Councilor’s department here is a token of DARC’s appreciation for the great job being done as educators and caretakers of the nation’s future. We trust that you will find both the kettle and refrigerator useful in the fulfillment of your duties.

They say fortune favors the brave and it indeed takes a lot for a youth of such tender age; to juggle motherhood and education in particular when they lack the bare necessities. Your level of scholastic achievement has been absolutely top-notch because of your sheer determination. So without further ado, the recipient of DARC’s 2013 scholarship fund, Rudesha Heaven!

Congratulations Miss Heaven! Could you please say a few words about your experience?
