Trinidad and Tobago mobile network solutions Bmobile has availed the services of Windies star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo as a Brand Ambassador, who has further spent a quality time at the Margaret Kistow Children’s Home, in a bid to help the children owing to the collaboration, as he went on to meet 36 children.
“It doesn’t matter where you come from and where your journey begins. But it’s important to know that there are people out there who care for you, love you and want you to excel,” Bravo was quoted by Trinidad and Tobago Online.
The 33-year-old Santa Cruz-born Bravo decided to step ahead further, as he distributed stationeries and textbooks among the 25 children of Kistow Home during the conclusion of the Book Buddies Programme organized by the Bmobile at his birthplace.
Bravo, who is known for his versatile character, has also addressed the children for working hard while presiding over the charity event ‘47’ which has joined hands with the mobile network company to contribute in nursing the young talent.
“Believe in yourself, use these books to get a proper education -you never know where life can take you,” Bravo maintained.
The partnership witnessed the stationeries including bags, notebooks, pens and the other essential items which are being used during the primary education.
While throwing the light on educational purpose, Magaret Kistow has lauded the efforts of the Bmobile and celebrated cricketer Bravo for lifting the spirit and boosting the morale of the students at such a tender age.
“We feel so blessed to receive these school supplies. The children now have their tools to work with. Financially, it’s difficult for us,” Kistow said.
Pertinently, Kistow is running the school since past 30 years revealed it is always hard to meet the financial requirements while adding education has become expensive in the modern-day world which in the first instance is very important for such wards.
“And even though education is one major need, it is expensive. We’re very grateful to Mr Bravo and bmobile,” added Kistow.
