Beharry Company Limited, the Region 6 Ministry of Education Department along with members of the Guyana Police Force in ‘B’ Division (Berbice) launched a “Say no to drugs/suicide and say yes to education/sports” campaign.
The campaign is designed to target youths from the various primary and secondary schools, as well as institutions that operate in and around the Rose Hall Town District, to encourage them to be more actively involved in programmes of an educational/athletic nature, which will aid them in a productive lifestyle. 
The campaign was successfully launched with over eight hundred (800) students and members of the Guyana Police Force participating in a march along the roadway from Hampshire Public Road, Corentyne to the Head Office of Saint Francis Community Developers, Rose Hall Town, Corentyne, Berbice. The participants
