GuySuCo Commences Community Outreach Programme to Improve Attendance on all Estates

The Guyana Sugar Corporation Inc. (GuySuCo) will be commencing a Community Outreach programme for residents in ‘sugar dependent’ communities (communities in the vicinity of all estates). Community meetings will be held at  Community Centres in villages where Estates are located.

The first Community Meeting will be held at the Wales Community Centre on 29 June, 2017  and the second at the Uitvlugt Community Centre in West Demerara on 5 July, 2017 at 4:00 pm. The focus for discussion at these two meetings will be: The ‘Uitvlugt Estate Improvement Programme (UEIP)’.

On 6 July, 2017, another Community Meeting will be held at the Enmore Community Centre for residents in Enmore and neighbouring communities on the East Coast of Demerara. The focus for this and subsequent meetings at Blairmont, Rose Hall, Albion and Skeldon Community Centres will be on the ‘The Role of Communities in Improving Attendance on Estates for the Second Crop 2017’.

The aim of this outreach programme is to mobilise cane harvesters, planters and cane transport operators, their families and communities around the importance of improving attendance at all Estates in order to sustain the industry.

The objectives are to: Create a greater awareness of the need for employees to turn out to ensure that the canes are harvested within the crop; mobilize the residents around Estates to encourage employees to improve attendance; mobilize community leaders and other stakeholders, such as customers, suppliers, government, private and civil society sectors around the importance of improving attendance on all Estates; create a greater awareness of the importance of the sugar industry and GuySuCo to the development of Guyana and the linkages between increased attendance and greater commitment, to sustaining the industry; and to build greater partnerships and engage more strategically  with communities and other partners around estates.

Residents within these communities are invited to contact the Management at any of our Estates or the Communications Department at the Head Office, La Bonne Intention Estate, on Telephone Nos: 222-6030-35 for further information.
