Indian Activist Mahatma Gandhi once said that you must “find yourself in the service of others.” No greater service can be found than knowing you’ve put a smile on someone's face, a smile that can make a lasting impact. Many lasting impacts were part of the life of Founder McGregor Ellis and since 2016 through House of Ellis; he has been paying it forward to the community and the schools that shaped his being. For the last three years, House of Ellis has awarded the top two students of the Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA - formerly known as Common Entrance) at the Pamelus Burke Primary and the Georgetown Government Schools with trophies for their achievement. In 2018, House of Ellis expanded their donations with a $500USD Scholarship Award.  The first recipient was Jada Williams of the Pamelus Burke Primary School. The annual scholarship recipient, which will be alternated between schools, is chosen by the staff of that school.
