Bankers Insurance Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited began its H.O.P.E (Helping Our Pupils Excel) programme to spread awareness to the youths of our nation. This programme was approved by the Ministry of Education and commenced on September 2015.
The project is a two-fold programme where one part teaches basic sporting skills to primary school students weekly on the school grounds. Then motivational sessions are introduced to discuss topics such as violence in schools, road safety, exercise and diet etc. We feel this approach will leave a greater influence on our children rather than simply having someone come in to talk about these topics.
At the beginning of each school Term six (6) schools are selected, our Brand Ambassadors Nicholas Landeau – (Track and Field Athlete) and Sean De Silva – (Vice Captain of Central Football Club / National Team Footballer) visits these schools once weekly for the entire school term to conduct these sessions. This programme is geared towards both boys and girls.
Bankers Insurance do hope that through this venture we make a positive impact on our Nation’s Youths.
