The Global Citizen Foundation, in partnership with the Share Foundation, presented a gift of US$50,000 to a classroom of joyful children at the Villa Primary School in St. John's on the island of Antigua. The donation will be used to provide new educational, sports and technical resources.
Mr. Armand Arton, CEO of Arton Capital and co-founder of the Global Citizen Foundation, was joined by the Hon. Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua & Barbuda, for the donation ceremony.
“Future generations will carry the best of this country around the world. That is why education is a top priority for the Global Citizen Foundation and our generous partners,” explains Mr. Arton. The donation to Villa Primary School is one of three major gifts originating from the Global Citizen Foundation in support of education in the Caribbean. Each year, the foundation donates to causes that improve access to education, support youth and encourage sustainable global development.
Mr. Arton says that access to education offers young people the opportunity to become global leaders.
