O.D Brisbane & Sons donates a computer to Child Fund Caribbean
O.D Brisbane & Sons Dominica Ltd. is continuing its corporate spirit of caring and sharing by giving back to the community, as they donated a brand new computer valued at $5,000.00 to Child Fund Caribbean for its ‘Love One Teach One Silver Lake Project,’ on Tuesday August 10th, 2010. This donation came on the heels of a previous donation to the organization of EC$30,000.00 which was part of the ‘2009 Brizee’s year of the family,’ a charitable campaign which focused on different aspects of social development. Sales and Marketing Assistant at O.D Brisbane & Sons Dominica Ltd. Shana Antoine said that O.D Brisbane & Sons is honored to make this donation to Child Fund Caribbean.
One of the facilitators of the ‘Love One Teach One Silver Lake Project’ Gloria Walsh said that the project is an afterschool program with various components that does not only cater to the needs of the less fortunate children but also to the wider community.
She said ‘the Love One Teach One Silver Lake Project, which has been established through Child Fund Caribbean and sponsored by O.D Brisbane & Sons Ltd, has been bearing fruits.’
In the interim, Director of Child Fund Caribbean, Mr. Francis Joseph said that it is indeed a pleasure to work with the Love One Teach One Silver Lake Foundation in helping them to establish themselves as a credible community based organization.
‘The plea is out to parents within the community, as the volunteers of the program are not necessarily responsible for raising and disciplining the children, lamented Mr. Joseph.
He said that the Program focuses on three various aspects, namely, the development of the Children, parents and the Community.
