Core Foundation recently partnered with bmobile Business to launch an agricultural venture in hydroponics with the Second Caledonia community members in Morvant, Trinidad
"The goal is to get young men and women involved in agriculture through hydroponics systems, contributing to their self-reliance and invoking their entrepreneurial spirit," bmobile Business said. The two entities developed the initiative because employment opportunities have been significantly reduced in many communities in the past few years and compounded recently by the economic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Core Foundation is a local NGO that has been engaged in work to enhance the lives of many underserved communities across the country. Established in 2015, its primary mission is to improve, inspire, and empower people to have a better quality of life by creating workable solutions to eradicate poverty and social issues.
TSTT’s general manager of enterprise services, Darryl Duke, confirmed the company’s support of the Core Foundation and its community development initiatives during the launch. Speaking to students and participants at the launch, Duke drew on his own experiences: “When I was in school, we were taught to get cheques, but not write cheques. There is no better time to be an entrepreneur and to learn about business through this opportunity. Learn to be the one who is making the money and writing the cheques. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime and I want each of you to leverage technology to make you and this business more efficient. That is what we are here to support today and for the time to come,” he said.
