CARIBBEAN TRUST- ‘Tithe Ten Club’
United Caribbean Trust formally launched the ‘Tithe
Ten Club’ in Bermuda, with the opening of the Trust’s
Managing Director of the Appleby Trust (Bermuda) Ltd,
Mr. John Harper made the first pledge of US $10.00 to open the account!
From small beginning...the ‘Tithe Ten Club’
has emerged, encourages donors to pledge a tithe of 10 per month of any
currency in which they operate in, US $10, Bds $10, Bermudan $10, £10
or Euro. Internet and e-commerse databases are currently under construction
to facilitate international donor-friendly pledging online.
10 areas have been identified
Private sector/ Business
Within these 10 areas we have identified 10 key figures,
who are being contacted regarding the 'Tithe Ten Club'
The idea is that they will be encouraged to source 10 contacts, half within
their field and the other half out side their area and island. These new
recruits will be encouraged to find similar contacts.
United Caribbean Trust is currently seeking International
funding so as to continue the organization’s humanitarian programmes
Partnering with the London based, Caribbean
Development Trust. It was a pleasure to meet in London with their
Chairman, Dr Johnson, who is optimistic that their diverse organisation
can forge a serious and formidable bond with United Caribbean Trust in
the delivery of much needed resources for the Caribbean. The U.C team
will be instrumental in compiling a data base of small businesses and
micro-enterprises in Grenada for the Caribbean Development Trust, so as
to provide mentoring and guidance to this sector, which employs an approximate
55% of the island’s work force.
Rehabilitation projects integral to the vulnerable communities including
health care and education are on going and now with the ability to raise
funds these programmes can surge ahead.
On the calendar for this year the collaborative efforts of NGO’s
are introducing a schools twinning
programme and an afternoon
kids club, featuring live theatre readings, drama and music.
The Trust will in turn tithe to the Tri-Island Church of God.
