Three members of the corporate community teamed up with Barbados TODAY this morning to make a special presentation to one local charity.
The latest beneficiary of BT’s Touch Programme is the local non-governmental organization, I Am A Girl, which seeks to target at-risk girls.
During I Am A Girl’s annual summer camp at the Derrick Smith School and Vocational Centre, donations were made by Promotech Business Solutions, Pharmacy Sales, and Lionel C Hill to assist with the general needs of the organization.
“We are extremely grateful that these three companies have found it in their hearts to sponsor such an important programme that is doing such a tremendous job of helping these special young women,” said Barbados TODAY’s Marketing Manager Johann Crichlow.
“We are very proud at Barbados TODAY to be part of this very worthwhile initiative,” he added.
Gabrielle Bailey, leader of the I Am A Girl summer camp said they were grateful for the support and would welcome further assistance from corporate Barbados.
“Any other entities [or] individuals that are willing to get involved, we are happy to have you on board. These girls need you, we need you, so we can continue to do the work that we do for them. Please don’t hesitate to get involved and make contact,” she said.
“I would like to say thanks again to everyone who made today’s donation possible. The girls would really appreciate everything that you’ve given and it is going to go to great uses . . . . I am sure the girls will be happy to receive it,” the camp leader added.
