The TCAAA affords kids the opportunity to participate in international sporting events and Food For Thought TCI have various programs geared towards feeding hungry school kids. 

Donations were awarded as follows:

Turks and Caicos Amateur Athletics Association: $20,000

Edward Gartland Youth Centre: $20,000

Food For Thought TCI: $20,000 (65 laptops) 

Laptops were donated this year to Food For Thought TCI in order to assist government school children learning from home due to the Covid-19 pandemic. These state of the art laptops will make online learning possible. 

Food for Thought was a first time recipient of a donation of 65 laptops to be distributed to government school students who require support during the COVID-19 pandemic; classes have been virtual since March

This brings the total donated by the WCGFT Committee to $341,000. We look forward to giving even more next year and we would like to thank our sponsors and organizers who were key in our efforts to give back to the Youth of the TCI Community.

We look forward with great anticipation to next year’s event.
