St. Kitts, June 17, 2010 (SKNIS) – The Kids Coalition has been recognized for its contribution towards youth development and received support from the Caribbean Cable and Telecommunications Association (CCTA).

Marketing manager of The Cable Telecommunications Lornila Matthew explained that the Kids Coalition received a US$750.00 grant from the association’s 2010 Community Charities Programme. She said the grant recipient was chosen because of the outstanding service and assistance it provides to the community.

The donation was received by representatives from the Ministry of Youth Empowerment which oversees the association’s activities. Maluska Lapsey told SKNIS that the funds will be used to purchase food items for the annual Summer Residential Camp.

The event teaches young children a number of disciplines including computer, art and craft, cooking, woodwork, cultural drumming and dancing. It will be run from July 18-28, 2010 at the Beach Allen Primary School.
