Community Programmes

Social responsibility and community involvement

Range strives to grow and strengthen the social and economic relationships within the communities we operate in, through the support and employment opportunities, as well as innovative programmes in local health, education, environment, and cultural activities. Our people and partners play a key role in creating value for our shareholders.

We recognise the need for our business to provide direct support to our local communities which rely on sponsorships and donations to survive. We will continue our involvement through various activities and will encourage the participation of our employees in the relevant events.

Current Community Programmes

Promoting sports activities

During 2017, the Company launched a new initiative aimed at promoting sports activities and healthy living amongst children and young adults by contributing towards purchase of cricket uniforms for the Independence Sports Club in Trinidad. The majority of the members of the club are under the age if 18 years, and it hosts various events for the community members to learn and benefit from.

Supporting education

Range aims to foster and promote the success of children in the communities and provide assistance to students from local schools. For the last two years,  Range has been engaging with the Guayaguayare Roman Catholic Primary School, located near the Company’s Beach Marcelle field in an effort to assist the young people living in the area. Range provided three scholarship grants to the top performing students from the school, as well as stationery supplies. 

Steel orchestra for youth

Range continues its support for the Morne Diablo Funk-a-delic steel orchestra in Trinidad. First formed in 2004, the steel orchestra band consists of around 40 local children between the ages of 6 and 18. Providing the children with an outlet for team building and community participation, the programme provides music lessons up to three times a week, where they learn how to play the steel pan (Trinidad and Tobago’s national musical instrument) and to read music. The orchestra has performed at a number of ceremonies, including events hosted by the government of Trinidad and Tobago.
