Roosevelt Skerrit addressed a Town Hall Meeting in the village of Thibaud in late December where he outlined the tremendous strides that have been made by his Government over the last several years, especially with respect to education and road infrastructure in the Vieille Case constituency.

 

According, Hon. Skerrit, who is also Parliamentary Representative for  the area  significant strides have been made in education, where many young persons from that part of the country  are being  granted opportunities to empower themselves irrespective of political or religious affiliation or socio-economic circumstances. Reference was made to the fact that there are countries in the world far richer than Dominica where children will not see a primary school let alone a secondary school.
