Dear family and friends,

The Linden Fund USA and the Ituni International Association are again co-hosting a festive holiday party on Saturday, December 17th at 325 Ralph Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. Tickets are $25. Attendees will be able to tape greetings that will be aired on NCN on both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day in Region 10. Celebrate the holidays with us and send your love to family and friends at home in Guyana.

The holidays greetings taped at our 2015 Party and broadcast on NCN TV were uploaded on our LFU YouTube channel and viewed by many supporters.  Continue reading

Your Excellency President David Granger, Honorable Ministers of the Government, Pro-Chancellor Bibi Shadick, Vice Chancellor Ivelaw Griffith, Members of the faculty and staff, other distinguished guests, other attendees, friends, and most importantly, the very reason why we are here today – the members of the University of Guyana class of 2016.

UG is in great hands with him at its helm.         Continue reading
