Caribbean Airlines (CAL) is partnering with First Lady Sandra Granger to transport for free, shoes from the New York to Guyana for her “Shoes that grow” project.
According to a Ministry of the Presidency press release, a team from CAL, the state-owned airline of Trinidad and Tobago, met with the First Lady yesterday, at her State House office. After the meeting, CAL’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Garvin Medera told the Ministry of the Presidency’s Public Information and Press Services Unit that an agreement was signed to pave the way for this new collaboration.
Medera said there is no established time frame for the period to which the service will be provided. He disclosed too that CAL is also willing to give support to other projects undertaken by the First Lady. “Shoes that grow” are specifically designed to ensure that they fit children as they age; the shoes are expandable.
