Christmas Toy Drive 2019

Community Strengthening & Youth Development

For many villages across Guyana, Christmas is a time to share in the beauty of community spirit and the meaning of family, hope and selflessness. This past Sunday, Century Tamara Energy Services (CTES) was able to share in this community spirit, as they ventured to the little village of Betsy Ground, in East Canje Berbice, for their annual Christmas Toy Drive.

CTES is a locally owned and operated oil and gas support services company, now endeavoring into its third year of operation here in Guyana has once again reached out to the children of the rural communities in an effort to aid their enjoyment of the Christmas Season.


Over 150 children, ranging from age 1 to 16, from Betsy Ground and surrounding villages in East Canje Berbice. Although hard to tell, the small farmers’ village boasts somewhere around 900 persons of all ethnicities and races, varying economic backgrounds who all seem to ‘live good’, as was lamented by local villager Yvonne.

Representative of the organization, John Quelch, on behalf of Country Manager, Sheldon Davis, briefly explained that this annual mission is a demonstration of the company’s support for community strengthening and youth development, especially in the rural and less supported areas of Guyana. Quelch noted that as part of their corporate social responsibility, they feel absolute pride in giving back to our communities in a way that fosters community spirit and supports families, especially in this season of goodwill and hope.

The CTES teams visited the Betsy Ground Primary School and McGowan Primary School in Berbice and the Fort Island Primary School and surrounding villages in Essequibo. The teams presented the items to just over 200 youths, as parents, teachers and village residents also showed up to show their support.

Century Tamara Energy Services Inc. (CTES), on Wednesday last, distributed almost 200 bookbags with school supplies to four schools in Regions 4 and 6.
The back-to-school drive started at Winfer Gardens Primary, and was attended by officials of the company, headmistress of the school, teachers, and parents among others.

From women involved in domestic service to professional service, the Big Deal Franchise honoured 42 phenomenal women spread across the length and breadth of Berbice.
RD Production, through its Miss Berbice Pageant in collaboration with Nand Persaud Charity Foundation and Jumbo Jet Auto Sales, held its first woman of worth dinner and awards ceremony.
