Guyana - Tiger Bay
Beverly Roberts returned to her native homeland of Georgetown, Guyana, and began a breakfast program for the at-risk and disadvantaged children in Tiger Bay.

Beverly Roberts became a member of The Brooklyn Tabernacle in 1997 and became active in a wide variety of ministries, such as Ministry of Helps, Puppet Ministry, Royal Family Kids Camp, Keepers of God's House, Prayer Band and Missions.  Beverly worked as a Reading Specialist for the NYC Department of Education for many years, serving in difficult districts where she taught many first generation immigrant children from families originating from the Caribbean, Africa, Middle East, South Asia, Central and South America. This gave her a heart for the nations and for children in particular.  Beverly was led to go on short-term trips under the Missions Ministry to Malawi, Cambodia and the land of her birth, Guyana.

After her experiences going back to Georgetown, Guyana, where she grew up, and watching a documentary about the children in an impoverished neighborhood in Georgetown, she was filled with compassion and a burning desire to bring the hope of Christ to the people of the area, particularly the children.  She began the process of praying and planning what she could do to help.

After visiting and seeing the needs of the children in the Tiger Bay neighborhood, she discovered that the most impoverished children go to school without any breakfast and that they barely eat enough for the entire day.  Without proper nutrition, the poorest children cannot concentrate and do well in school, so they are trapped into a cycle of poverty.  Beverly moved back to Guyana in 2016 and started a food/nutrition program at the school, starting with 25 children, in partnership with local churches and ministries.  Through this program, she plans to feed them physical and spiritual food.  She was greatly encouraged by Pastor Park and the words of Scripture from Joshua 1:9: "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
