TAMCC makes donation to hospital at Mirabeau



 St. George’s, Grenada (June 29, 2011) – The T.A. Marryshow Community College donated ten (10) whole chickens to the Princess Alice Hospital in Mirabeau. The chickens were reared by students in the Poultry Rearing programme at the Mirabeau Campus, and weighed an average of four and a half (4 ½ ) pounds  

Mr. Kester Cyrus, Acting Health Services Administrator of the hospital accepted the donation on behalf of the staff and patients, and indicated his appreciation for the gesture. Ms. Lorin Alexander, International Youth Foundation  (IYF) Project Manager at TAMCC, stated that ‘it is imperative that the youth understand that they should give to others, hence the donation today to the Princess Alice Hospital, our neighbor and an institution with the responsibility of providing health care services for the residents of St. Andrew and other surrounding parishes.’

Twenty students have been in training from May 9, 2011 and will cover all competence in Poultry Rearing Level II. The training, sponsored by USAID, has five components: Core training, Life Skills training, Computer skills training, Remedial Education and Internship. It is the aim of TAMCC to have well rounded/trained individuals at the completion of the training. Other programmes offered in TAMCC under this project include: Office Attendant, Housekeeping, Plumbing, AC & Refrigeration, and Commercial Food Preparation.
