MONDAY FEBRUARY 5 2018: The Goodwill Industries is now on board the Digicel Foundation’s Extraordinary Projects Impacting Communities (EPIC) programme, after receiving a grant to the sum of TT$45,000 to expand their screen printing class.
As a vocational school, the Goodwill Industries facilitates a variety of employment training programmes, which includes bookbinding, hairstyling, food preparation, furniture refinishing and production to persons with special needs.
With the funding received from the Foundation, an expanded screen printing class will be added to these services, allowing for more clients to enrol. The organisation’s long term objective is to introduce evening classes to the single parents within the community.
The screen printing classes will focus on the construction and design of cards, printing of T-shirts, banners, cups and caps.
The Digicel Foundation EPIC initiative, which targets community, faith-based organisations and NGO’s, was launched in 2016, to assist with implementing small scale projects in communities.
Organisations must submit an application to firstname.lastname@example.org, to be reviewed before qualifying for the grant. Applications can be found at digicelfoundation.org
