In celebration of Trinidad and Tobago’s 54th Independence Day, the youth from the Living Water Community and UTC staff volunteers tapped into their artistic sides at the Bead Cafe for the Krafty Kids Workshop.

A fun filled day of arts and crafts, the youth and staff volunteers paid homage to Independence Day by painting the Trinidad and Tobago flag on wall plaques and made beaded jewelry using the national colours, red, white and black.

“The children we work with don’t usually have the opportunity to express their creative selves,” explains Suzanne Dowdy, of the Living Water Community. “And this workshop helps them cultivate positive self-image and encourages self-expression.”

UTC recognizes the important role arts and culture plays in society, and encouraging youth from the Living Water Community to participate in the Krafty Kids workshop is necessary to the development of self, fosters nation building and social cohesion.

Supporting communities through giving back is just one cornerstone of UTC’s business model. Donating time and resources through volunteerism is just as essential as donating financial sponsorships.

UTC continues to serve the needs of the surrounding communities and is dedicated to creating a brighter future for our youth.
