Orange Day March

 

 The streets of Roseau were filled with excitement as students from various schools gathered at the Bayfront for the Caricom Youth Ambassadors Orange Day march.

Orange Day is an international programme but it is being run throughout the Caribbean by the Caribbean Youth Ambassadors.

In terms of preparations for this event, Ms. Jervier said the Ministry of Education came on board and was very supportive with allowing the students to take part in this activity.

Ms. Ameka Cognet performed a lovely poem which explained the qualities as well as the struggles of a woman that touched everyone in the crowd.

Minister for Culture, Youth and Sports, Honorable Justina Charles says it is painful when she looks at some things that women and young girls go through which is not fair at all.

The minister stated that usually she do not take any appointments on Tuesdays however, she felt as if she needed to be present at this event.

She hopes that this will be an annual event.
