(Kingston, Jamaica 22nd, Sept. 2010) Reggae Artiste Nesbeth has made known his disappointment in not being able to launch his outreach programmed due to lack of funding. “Things have been extremely tight for many persons and companies even during the recession and I think the timing was a bit off because people were more focused on back to school preparation” said Nesbeth.
The Nesbeth Outreach programme was conceptualized to assist needy persons and was to be launched on August 28th, 2010 in Arnette Gardens, the hometown of the soft spoken Reggae Artiste. Nesbeth had met with the Principal of the Charlie Smith Comprehensive High School in Arnette Gardens, Mr. Dennis Kelly; who expressed his desire to access funding that will aid some of the schools’ most pressing needs. These included but are not limited to purchasing a refrigerator and the refurbishing the schools’ cafeteria as well as purchasing sporting equipments and gears to facilitate its cricket, netball, football and track and field teams. Nesbeth has been concerned about students attending school without money to purchase lunch and hoped to garner corporate sponsorship to assist in a lunch subsidy program. The Nesbeth Outreach, would have also assisted elderly folks in the community by way of seeking medical assistance in the Health Ministry to visit the community and administer hypertension, diabetes, heart and a general check up many of the elderly folks would not have been able to afford.
However, Nesbeth has not given up hope and have now gone back to the drawing board to seek, “a new way forward” in launching this programme, one that is “close to his heart” because he witnesses the depression of the people daily.
