Supporting Flavors of Grenada Culinary Training Camp
We at Sol have a passion for powering journeys, and so we recently joined forces with Flavors of Grenada to host a five (5) week culinary training camp for teenagers! To top off the experience, our campers coordinated a farm to table dinner in the grand dining room at the Tower Estate in St. Paul’s. Through this exciting culinary initiative, we were able to encourage young upcoming chefs and service personnel, build awareness of Grenada’s growing Hospitality Industry and educate Grenadians more about accessing, growing and preparing their own seasonal healthy foods and drinks. We are proud to have supported this initiative through a monetary contribution and the provision of Sol Gas for food preparation. A job well done to our campers; we cannot wait to see where this journey takes you!
Sol Grenada promotes anti-littering and encourages you to use our waste disposal bags and display our bumper stickers so you too can be an advocate for a cleaner environment. Thanks to the Grenada Tourism Authority for teaming up with us on this initiative.
Sol EC Ltd. (Grenada), took part in the regional Caribe Wave Exercise which simulated a magnitude 6.0 earthquake generated by activity from the local under water volcano, Kick ‘Em Jenny. As a result of the simulated earthquake, tsunami waves were generated, thereby requiring immediate evacuation. The Grand Mal Pre-Primary School was also invited to participate in the exercise where 48 students along with parents and teachers enacted the simulated evacuation. All participants were pleased to be included in the exercise and asked that they be given more similar opportunities in the future. The entire evacuation process was completed in approximately 18 minutes after receiving the notification.
Sol Grenada recently supported the annual Hope-Pals Foundation summer camp for children infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, through the provision of financial support for meals and cooking gas. The camp was geared toward providing psycho-social support and fulfillment activities for the children. The presentation was made at the Grenada Red Cross to Ms. Christel Charles, the community outreach officer; who expressed her gratitude for Sol’s support on this activity.
The Hope-Pals Foundation is a non-profitable organisation and serves the authentic voice of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in the state of Grenada. The event was a success as Sol’s continued support re-iterated our company’s commitment to giving back to vulnerable groups.
