THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2019: PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO – Community Centres are excellent community spaces where residents have easy access to events, programs, courses, and general information about the community. The Curepe Community Centre has been established over 40 years ago. This community centre has been the hub of activity for the residents who attend dance classes, workshops and who hosts their weddings, birthday parties and other events there. A few months ago major refurbishment works occurred but soaring temperatures during the day prevented residents from fully utilizing the facilities especially during the day.
This problem no longer exists since Digicel Foundation, under its Extraordinary Projects Impacting Communities (EPIC) Programme, partnered with the Honourable Terrence Deyalsingh, Minister of Health and Member of Parliament (MP) for the St. Joseph area, and the Hillside Community Club to provide funds to facilitate the purchase of two air conditioned units for the community centre which is located close to the main entrance of East Grove Housing Development.
The Honourable Terrence Deyalsingh and Shane Boodoosingh, President of Hillside Community Club thanked Digicel Foundation for partnering with community groups throughout Trinidad and Tobago.
