MONDAY OCTOBER 8 2018: PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO – Partners of the Digicel Foundation - the Brasso Seco/Morne Le Croix Farmers’ Association and Rebirth House have joined forces.
Through their respective partnerships with the Foundation, the two organisations have found a way to work together for the betterment of their communities.
In 2016, the BrassoSeco/Morne Le Croix Farmers’ Association established the Honey Seco Project, a Community Bee Apiary, which directly impacts over 100 persons all of whom benefit from the Agri-business initiative.
In clearing areas to increase the production of apiaries for their Honey Seco Project, the group realised that the lumber generated could be put to good use and donated the wood for the Rebirth House’s RecoverArt project.
The RecoverArt project launched in August of this year at the Rebirth House is designed to assist recovering addicts with their rehabilitation and personal development, through occupational therapy in the form of craft and furniture-building skills.
Both initiatives are Digicel Foundation funded projects.
