FRIDAY OCTOBER 26 2018: PORT OF SPAIN – The Heal-a-ton Foundation - Planting Seeds of Love: Agriculture and Literacy Programme is the latest NGO to benefit from the Digicel Foundation, through its Extraordinary Projects Impacting Communities (EPIC) Programme.
Founded by Kevin Bowen, Heal-a-ton has been contributing free of charge to the agricultural and literacy development of primary school children in the Maloney community.
The NGO was selected to receive funding to the sum of US$5,000 after submitting its application to the Digicel Foundation earlier this year. The donation covers the costs to purchase garden tools, seedlings, books and other equipment necessary to make the programme a success.
Kevin Bowen and Michelle Agard, Education Consultant of the Heal-a-ton Foundation were very appreciative of the Digicel Foundation for its support in the community initiative. Lay Evangelist Mark Samuel of the Anglican Diocese praised the Foundation, noting that investing in children is an investment in their future.
