He stressed Integrity’s commitment to reducing the illiteracy rate among these at-risk teenagers, adding that Integrity operates on the vision of ‘Hope and opportunity for disenfranchised children in Jamaica’.Integrity mainly provides needed resources for the children’s intellectual and social development.Integrity Children’s Fund has contributed US$280,000 to three schools in Kingston and St. Andrew over the past seven years.The beneficiary schools are Joy Town Learning Centre, a basic school making inroads in early childhood education in Trench Town; Operation Restoration Christian School, a remedial school attempting to assist illiterate teenaged students; and Peter’s Rock Preparatory School, a kindergarten and elementary school located in East Rural St. Andrew.

There will not be so much pressure on him defensively.“Yes, he (Wenger) likes them to play better football. I think Wenger is better for Henrikh.“I think the (Manchester United) fans liked him.

It is good he has left,” Petrosyan said..last_img read more
