Canadian High Commission donates computers to Buxton Youth Developers Project – 5th Apr 2013
The Buxton Youth Developers Project aimed at creating a positive image in the community, today got another shot in the arm with the donation of computers from the Canadian High Commission and Internet service from Telephone provider GT&T.
Canadian High Commissioner, David Devine, addressing youths during the handing over ceremony, spoke about the opportunities that are available through education and the connections that are possible via the Internet.
GT&T CEO, Radha Krishna Sharma said, GT&T was happy and ready to play its part in helping to realize the vision and dreams of the community.
The project, which is the brainchild of Rodney Phillips, started in 2005 and has blossomed to this modern facility catering for children of Buxton and other surrounding communities.
Patron of the developer’s youth project, Lenny Shufler, stressed on the importance of finance in expanding plans and programmes of the community.
Currently over 3,000 children are receiving free and voluntary lessons, and are benefiting from the sporting facilities that are available at the community center, which is located in Vigilance.
