July 18, 2013 – Through the generosity of the Caribbean Cable and Telecommunications Association (CCTA), The Learning & Empowerment through the Arts Program (LEAP) and the St. Peter’s Brownie Club are the recipients of a $1,000 grant from the association’s 2012 and 2013 Community Charities Program. Both organizations were nominated for the grant by The Cable, a member of the CCTA and the cable and telecommunications provider for St. Kitts.
LEAP and the St. Peter’s Brownie Club were chosen as grant recipients because of the outstanding services and assistances they provide to the community. The checks for $1,000 each were presented by Mrs. Lornlia Matthew, Marketing Manger of The Cable, on July 1 and 15, respectively.
The CCTA’s Community Charities Program, established in 1993, has awarded more than $281,000 to Caribbean charities during its existence. The program originally awarded only 10 grants per year, but interest in the program has grown substantially in the last 20 years. All 14 of the 2013 nominees were worthy organizations, so the association’s board of directors voted unanimously to award $1,000 grants to all.
The 14 Community Charities Program grant recipients were nominated by the following cable and telecommunications operators: Bermuda CableVision; BVI Cable TV; Choice Cable TV of Puerto Rico; Innovative Cable TV St. Croix; Innovative Cable TV St. Thomas-St. John; Liberty Cablevision of Puerto Rico; OneLink Communications of Puerto Rico; St. Lucia Cablevision (LIME); St. Maarten Cable TV; SETAR of Aruba; The Cable of St. Kitts; T.V. Distribution Systems of Curacao; WestStar TV Limited of the Cayman Islands; and Wireless Telecommunication Network of St. Maarten.
Formed in 1983, the Caribbean Cable and Telecommunications Association represents cable and telecommunications providers throughout the Caribbean, and the programmers, software and hardware suppliers that support their operations.
