UPS FOUNDATION DONATES 40-THOUSAND GRANT TO VARIETY THE CHILDREN’S CHARITY OF BARBADOS

The UPS Foundation, which leads the global citizenship programme for delivery gurus UPS held a large gala to acknowledge their donation of $40,000 to Variety The Children’s Charity of Barbados, as part of the courier’s continued support towards young people of the region.

This grant will support Variety’s LIFE Skills Training Project which trains underprivileged and at-risk teens for entering the real world of jobs, bills and budgets.

Minister of Industry & Commerce – Donville Inniss lauded the move by UPS since he noted poverty is not necessarily being a gang member or having a rundown property, it can be as simple as the lack of the correct kind of family or mentor in a teen’s life;-

Hannah Bowen is an 18 year old graduate of the training, she told the audience how she wished this kind of class was shared in schools across the island;-

The teenager says in learning how to plan their meals as well, led very quickly in learning how to interact with adults no matter their age range;-

UPS Barbados operates in the island with a staff of 12 and the renowned company is getting ready to do more to assist worthy causes of Barbados.
