An initiative that encourages young people to take social responsibility, look after their environment and give back to their community has received funding from the Guardian Angel Foundation.
The Foundation has donated over £3,300 to purchase books and other school resources to support the initiative driven by the Office of the Commissioner for Sustainable Development and Future Generations.
A further £4,400 will be donated to purchase materials that enable learners to engage practically in growing food in schools, looking after green areas and improving their local community.
Minister for the Environment, John Cortes, thanked the Commissioner for Sustainable Development, Professor DaniellaTilbury, and said building a greener tomorrow is not just the responsibility of the Government, but requires that everyone in the community think beyond their own individual needs and take responsibility.
The Guardian Angel Foundation was set up in 2013 with the aim of improving standards of care and living for local children affected by financial distress or suffering from any illness or disability. The charity also supports institutions that provide care and support services to children.
