UTC continues support for Tobago Heritage Festival

 

August 5th 2013: The Unit Trust Corporation, in its continued commitment towards community development and cultural enrichment, has once again partnered with the Tobago Heritage Festival by supporting the Canaan/Bon Accord Village Council in its production “It takes a Village to raise a child.” The UTC made a tangible contribution of $35,000.

UTC’s Executive Director, Ian Chinapoo, in his address, endorsed this year’s theme “Community Treasures: Reflections, ” stressing  that “honouring our history forces us to refocus our attention on the importance of community togetherness and the inherent belief that communities help foster the growth of its human treasures – its people.”

Chinapoo applauded the Festival Committee and the Canaan/Bon Accord village for their dedication to ensuring the continuity of the annual celebration that fuels the cultural enrichment of Tobago.

In its elaborate stage production of “It takes a Village to raise a child,” the sixth installment by the Canaan/Bon Accord community, the Canaan/Bon Accord Village Council was able to highlight the significance of the village in instilling values and morals and its contribution to the social development of the community.
