A primary school student participates in an assignment where she writes a letter requesting donations for her school library. This letter caught the attention of National Commercial Bank (NCB) Foundation, which donated JMD 100, 000 towards increasing the school library's stock. The author in the article provides the background behind the student's motivation for writing the letter, the sponsor's motivation for the donation and the reception of the school administrator to the donation and intention for how the donation will impact on the school library programmes.
