“TT Online Community Voices!”- MSCD announces upcoming Virtual Outreach & Education series

The business of Community Development continues as the Ministry of Sport and Community Development (MSCD) adapts and delivers its mandate amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Every year, the MSCD teams up with various stakeholders through its Community Awareness and Sensitization Programme to disseminate public information on various issues that affect the daily lives of our citizens. This year, the Ministry is embarking on bringing these discussions to the online community.

Titled “TT Online Community Voices!”, the series will include sixteen (16) engaging discussions with stakeholders from various sectors and will run from October 14th 2021 to January 27th 2022. The talks will focus on information critical to personal and community development that may help citizens in their decision-making processes and direct them to resources that may be useful in providing support.

According to the Honourable Shamfa Cudjoe, “The national and global responses to control the COVID 19 pandemic continue to affect how communities keep in touch and advance their development. This Virtual Outreach initiative provides a platform for the MSCD to continue to touch, develop, educate and empower communities as we focus on surviving and overcoming these turbulent times”.

Below is the schedule for the Virtual Outreach series, which will be streamed every Thursday at 2 pm via the Ministry’s social media pages and available on its YouTube Channel:
