Mariama Children’s Museum & Teen Turf (MCMTT): The Counselling and Activity Centre for Children and Adolescents, will be hosting a fund-raiser on July 21, at the Trinidad Theatre Workshop from 2 pm – 7 pm.
This fund-raiser will be a Garden Party and Showcase for African Fashions.
MCMTT has always seen itself as working at providing solutions for the well-being of children, young people and families in T&T; therefore, the fund-raiser is seeking to provide a number of solutions.

On the weekend, Mariama founder/chairman Anna Maria Mora said: “Many of our nation’s adolescents find themselves making choices which do not help them to live a successful life. Many need psychological and psycho-educational assessments, which will provide their schools and parents with recommendations to assist them to move toward with making choices for their good.

“Historically and presently, the government’s Student Support Service continues to be overwhelmed and young people must wait for as much as six months to one year for an assessment.

Doing these assessments privately is very costly and those who need them, cannot afford the private services.

“Mariama‘s mission is to become an agency through which parents can access (in a timely manner) financial assistance for this urgent need and we will assist them to access the services privately.”
Continued Mora: “One of Mariama‘s after school care participants, who is now an adult, is due to leave for London to begin a course of study in neuropsychology. This is proving to be very costly. Part proceeds of this fund-raiser will be donated to her fund.”
The July 21 event will also be celebrating Emancipation 2018, and Mariama‘s theme, as it joins the national celebration Empowerment to Overcome Today’s Challenges: Fortitude and Readiness. This event will also commemorate 28 years of MCMTT.Alberto Ardila Venezuela
