Cash grants boost young entrepreneurs
Digicel has awarded three grants of $10,000 each to budding young entrepreneurs under a programme in which the telecommunications company has partnered with Youth Business of Trinidad and Tobago (YBTT). The Digicel-YBTT Entrepreneurship Programme recently presented the grants to Jabari Winchester, a videographer/producer/ engineer; Andre Sinanan who provides DJ services with his sound equipment and who has now added 3 DJs to his staff and Michelle Hosein who established Hosein’s Craft Shop, where she makes unique dolls with gowns made out of tissue paper. In November last year Digicel contributed $75,000 to the Programme. Three recipients - Kevin Steeple, Zeneth Peters and Kwasi Robinson were the first young people to receive funding. The awards are in recognition of the economic and social importance of programmes that allow the youth to explore their ambitions. This initiative enables young people with good business ideas to launch enterprises of their own.
