In this regard, on this day the Board's plans were released to commence community outreach and mentoring programmes in Essequibo and Berbice in various schools.

The 4th Annual General Meeting of the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation, was held at the Grand Costal Inn on Friday 16th February, 2018. Members were given the opportunity to discuss the activities and plans at the AGM which was hosted and chaired by Vice-President Mr. Mohamed Khan.

Outgoing President of the G.S.S.F., Mrs. Vidushi Persaud-McKinnon reflected on her Presidency and stated in her address to the Membership “In 2014 I stood here amongst you to thank you for entrusting me to assume the Presidency of what promised to be a ground-breaking progressive sporting entity: the Guyana Sport Shooting Foundation. And here I am now expressing my gratitude to all of you for making the past 4 years absolutely phenomenal. Since 2014, we've faced our fair share of challenges, and come through them stronger and even more ground-breaking for Guyana. That is because we have never let go of a belief that has guided us ever since our founding — our conviction that, together, we can change sport shooting and the concept of sport shooting in this country and take it to a whole new higher level.”
