GraceKennedy (Trinidad & Tobago) Ltd aids virtual learning


This was the thinking underpinning GraceKennedy (Trinidad & Tobago) Ltd’s support for the children of Mother’s Union Home in Marabella.

Port of Spain, Trinidad, January 10, 2022.
Give a child an education and you give a gift for life.
This was the thinking underpinning GraceKennedy (Trinidad & Tobago) Ltd’s support for the
children of Mother’s Union Home in Marabella.

The recent handover of laptops and headsets, ahead of the new school year, provides much-
needed tools for bridging the digital gap and maximizing online education.

Founded in 2001, Mother’s Union Home currently accommodates ten children between the ages
1-14 years. It is partially funded by the local arm of the Anglican Church along with government
subventions. Children are assigned to the home in conjuction with the Children’s Authority of T&T.

“With the challenges brought on by the pandemic, particularly for students who cannot attend in-
person classes, it was important to ensure that these kids have the devices needed for virtual

classes,” said Donald Edwards, Country Manager of GraceKennedy Money Services (T&T) Ltd.
He continued: “In this new normal of accelerated digital learning, not only must we ensure that no
child is left behind, we also have a responsibility to help them excel, regardless of circumstances.”
The laptop donation is the latest in a series of initiatives by GKTT aimed at improving the welfare
of citizens and building stronger communities across Trinidad & Tobago.
GraceKennedy Money Services (Trinidad & Tobago) Ltd is the agent for Bill Express, FX Trader
and Western Union.
