Community- Reaching Out


The TCL Group prides itself on its ongoing and sterling contribution to the community. The value of reaching out to the less fortunate in society is profoundly entrenched in the corporate soul of the Group, so too in the hearts of the employees who are always volunteering to share in the spirit of goodwill be it the maintenance of homes for disabled and underprivileged children, working with organisations involved in community outreach programmes or assisting fire victims to rebuild.

Committed to building a solid, secure relationship with the communities in which the group operates, each subsidiary works alongside its neighbours, primarily towards the constant improvement of housing, sport, culture, education and the environment.

 

Carib Cement Company Limited donated toward the establishment of the Jacques Road Educational Centre in June 2013. The Jacques Educational Centre is an initiative of the Jacques Parenting Centre which focuses on improving primary education, offering certified training classes and introductory computer training, as well as increasing general access to computers and the internet.

 In 2013 TCL launched the Rainwater Harvesting (RHW)Training Programme for Mayo and Corosal residents.  Due to the scarcity of tap borne water in this community of approximately 150 persons, TCL recognised an excellent opportunity for the company to impact on the ability of the residents to safely procure and manage an alternative source of water.
