Basseterre, St. Kitts – With the 2022/23 academic year just around the corner, the TDC Group of Companies and The Cable have partnered to support the community-based organisation, The Kidz Club, with its second annual Back-to-School Drive.

The civic minded companies jointly donated over five hundred dollars in back-to-school supplies from the TDC Home and Building Depot to benefit at least two hundred children, who will attend the “Back to School with Bang” Funday at popular entertainment spot, Seventeen Degrees, on Victoria Road, in Basseterre.

The idea is the brainchild of Mrs Kenisha Rameshwar, Kidz Club founder, who saw the need to create an opportunity for children, especially the less fortunate to get access to scholastic materials through entertainment to better prepare them for success in the classroom.

The Funday will also feature a variety of exciting traditional games and activities that will include give aways, face painting, along with refreshments for a minimal cover change to attend and participate.

The collaboration forms part of an ongoing corporate social responsibility drive to further promote and advance education in the Federation.
