More transformations for Angoy’s Avenue
―Minister Henry promises
DPI, Guyana, Tuesday, January 14, 2020
Angoy’s Avenue, once considered one of the most depressed communities in New Amsterdam, Berbice has seen a massive transformation within the past four years and can expect more in the future.
This assurance was made by New Amsterdam native and Minister of Education Nicolette Henry during an engagement at Patrick Dam, Angoy’s Avenue, East Berbice on Monday.
Those gathered were reminded that Angoy’s Avenue once without basic amenities now boasts asphaltic roads, an ICT hub, potable water, electricity and streetlight among others. More notably in early 2019, over 1000 residents were granted titles for lands they were occupying since the 1970s.
Minister Henry noted that these developments were all achieved under the Coalition in little under four years. “Our track record speaks for itself, what we have done in our first four years, let me tell you, the road that you are standing on never happened before under the last administration, your land titles, water, electricity, ICT Hub and the hot meals program for your children in schools, these things are real, we have a competent cabinet and we know what it means to put the people first”
The Education Minister called on the residents to look at the examination results from the past four years to realise the investments being made in the future of the country’s children. Guyana topped the CSEC in 2019.
“… we have brought about changes in the lives of thousands of young people as we take them to the next step using technology. I know you have heard of the smart classrooms, ICT Hubs in many of our schools and technology-enabled learning and we will continue under the APNU+AFC government. A government that has introduced the youth innovation programme, the youth core and we are committed to ensuring that no eligible Guyanese will ever again have to pay to attend the University of Guyana”.
Minister Henry emphasised that given the trajectory seen over the past few years residents can expect more developments for their community and its environs.
