Dominica: RayAsta Foundation donated equipment to the school


To get young students interested in science, the RayAsta Foundation recently gave lab and science equipment to St. Mary’s Primary School. This presentation took place at the school on January 9, 2023.

During the presentation, Mrs Jennifer Astaphan, who is the Chair of the RayAsta Foundation, talked to the students about how she hoped this equipment would get them interested in science. She said, “We want to get students interested in science, and we hope many of you will become scientists when you grow up.” Our Foundation was set up in memory of Raymond Astaphan, who wanted to be a neurologist. We hope this gift will inspire you to think about what you want to do in the future.


Mrs Norrissa Peters, who is in charge of St. Mary’s Primary School, thanked the RayAsta Foundation for putting money into the students. She said, “The RayAsta Foundation is a sign of love, hope, persistence, and courage, and we are glad to be a part of it.” We’re very happy to get this equipment and proud to be a part of the RayAsta Foundation’s history.

In memory of Raymond Astaphan, who wanted to become a doctor but died in a car accident, the RayAsta Foundation was set up. He went to St. Mary’s Academy and St. Mary’s Primary School. The Foundation’s main focus is on neuroscience and neurology, and it helps stroke patients in Dominica and the surrounding area get the best care possible.

The RayAsta Foundation’s act of kindness will not only help the students of St. Mary’s Primary School, but it will also have a long-lasting effect on their education and careers. Students will learn more about science concepts and get more hands-on experience if they access the latest lab and science equipment. This will make them more interested in science and want to work in the field.

Also, this act of kindness will be good for the science programme at the school as a whole. Now that the school has newer tools, it can offer a complete science curriculum and give its students a well-rounded education.

It’s great to see groups like the RayAsta Foundation take the initiative to help young people get a good education. Kind acts like these can make a big difference in students’ lives and give them the tools they need to succeed.

Also, the focus of the Foundation on neuroscience and neurology shows how important this field is and how it could affect people’s lives. By giving stroke patients up-to-date services, the Foundation is making a real difference in people’s lives and helping improve their health and well-being.


The RayAsta Foundation’s gift of science and lab equipment to St. Mary’s Primary School shows that the group cares about education and wants to inspire young scientists. This act of kindness will have a long-lasting effect on the students, the school, and the community. It is also a good reminder of the good things that can happen when organisations work together for the greater good.
