CEPEP Spreads Christmas Cheer to the Male Transition Home in St Madeleine
December 14th, 2020 – The CEPEP Company Limited spread some much-needed Christmas cheer to the Male Transition Home in St Madeleine today by donating a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and other decorations to the facility which is located at #18 Archie Street, St Madeleine.
During a brief handover ceremony at the organization’s compound, Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Keith Eddy said, “It is important for us to spread some Christmas cheer especially to these vulnerable youths enrolled in the Home’s mentorship programme. This year has been particularly difficult for citizens and more so for these young men who do not have families to lean on and have spent most of their lives in group homes. At CEPEP, we believe in protecting families and the most vulnerable in society so it is a privilege for us to be here today and to provide assistance to organizations like these.”
In response to the Company’s gesture of goodwill, Programme Manager, Lorenzo Chariandy insisted that the donation of Christmas decorations would go a long way to spread the Christmas spirit within the facility and aid in the psycho/social development of the young men.
The Male Transition Home was officially opened in 2015 and completed by NIPDEC in 2018. It has an overall housing capacity for twelve (12) persons, with the ability to care for two (2) differently-abled persons. The programme was originally managed by the Civilian Conservation Corps but now falls under the purview of the new Ministry of Youth Development and National Services.
Also in attendance were Mr. Matthew Kailah, Senior Operations Officer and Mr. Gary Stoddard, Senior Financial Officer at the CEPEP Company Limited.
