Nia Laborde; Miss FLOW and Contestant 6 in the Miss SVG 2023 pageant, launched her GECCU Miss SVG Community Service Project on Sunday.
Laborde’s community service project, titled “RENEWGEN”, is based on the golden economy, or the sunshine economy.
In her introductory presentation, Laborde said that her community service project will focus on helping residents in her community to become more mindful of our future and the impacts of the careless use of traditional energy sources.
As such, this year’s Miss Flow will inform her neighbourhood about the various renewable energy sources and efficient energy-saving methods to reduce their energy costs.
On Monday, the RENEWGEN rally was held in Sion Hill following a successful community drive-through and meet and greet.
The rally, which was held at the Sion Hill intersection from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., saw informative presentations from MP for Sion Hill, Fitz Bramble as well as Luke Browne, Ikarmola Laborde, and representatives from SOL Life.
Artistes showing support to Laborde and her cause included Amia Browne, Jasper, the JussBussCamp, Dose Up, Junction Crew, and the Sion Hill Euphonium Steel Orchestra.
Laborde will conduct school visits, visiting Sion Hill Government School and the Dorsetshire Government School today (Wednesday) and C.W Prescod Primary School on Thursday.
During the visits, she will share with students on the golden economy with emphasis on the harmful effects of traditional energy sources.
The RENEWGEN Exposition and Fun Day will conclude the week of activities at the Roseau Recreational Park on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
