The Ministry of Education,Ecclesiastical Affairs & Reconciliation launched activities to coincide with Minibus Operators (MBO) Day, which will be observed on 25th May under the theme “Keep Us Safe Today, As You Take Us On Our Way”.

The program of activities was launched in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport, the Royal Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force, the SVG Insurance Association, the minibus operators and the National Reconciliation Advisory Committee.

Delivering remarks during the launch, Mrs. Morine Williams, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, said that Minibus Operators are very important to transport the nation’s children to and from school as they seek to ensure the continued development of the country.

Mrs. Williams also noted that there will be a series of activities leading up to the Day where they will seek to inform and educate Minibus Operators on ways in which they can improve the very important service they offer to the people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Sergeant Henry Providence from the Royal Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force said that, through this initiative, they are hoping to work closer with the minibus operators to improve on the service which they deliver.

He reminded the minibus operators that the Police is not their enemy, as he noted that there will be representatives from the Traffic Department at each of the exhibition booths, which will be mounted on Minibus Operators Day.

Mr. Hasib Woodley, a minibus operator, said that this program of activities is very timely and he is confident that the operations of his fellow minibus operators will be strengthened through their participation.

The Ministry of Education will also be disseminating a series of posters and bumper stickers to minibus operators with safety messages for children who utilise their services.
