The Cotton Tree Foundation & Hyatt Regency Trinidad

When every child has the opportunity to meet his or her potential, families and communities are strengthened. The Cotton Tree Foundation is a Trinidad and Tobago based community NGO focused on providing educational opportunities for at risk children at the pre and primary school levels.

Hyatt Regency Trinidad has partnered with CTF for the past three years in supporting initiatives aimed at promoting early self-regulation through social play opportunities that enhance an understanding and appreciation of good citizenship.

Remarkably, the failure rate of students writing the national secondary mathematics exam is unacceptably high. This community grant will support CTF’s ‘Maths Is Fun “initiative geared to improving student performance and attitude toward mathematics at a critically early age. The grant will help fund the purchase of multi-sensory manipulatives and strengthen CTF’s immersion program dedicated to developing Math Concepts, Experimentation, Language, and Social Play.
