May Cherrie Honour Award
In 2012, RHAND introduced the May Cherrie Honour Scholarship targeted at children entering Primary School. In issuing this award, RHAND partners with the Early Childhood Centre of the St. Martin’s Welfare Association. This Association was chosen as it was considered one of the favoured Charities of the late Ms. May Cherrie, a founding member of the RHAND Credit Union, in whose honour the scholarship is named. Three (3) scholarships are awarded annually based on select criteria including parental interest & involvement. Once selected, each awardee receives an annual bursary for seven (7) years.
The Membership Skills Development Programme was borne out of the co-operative philosophy of providing education and training for members.
These programmes run annually and serve two main objectives:
- Assisting in Human Development (Skills and Professional Improvement)
- Equipping members with tools to generate additional income
