Financial assistance is being provided to the Imani Trainees attached to the TA Marryshow Community College (TAMCC) who are undergoing a course of studies.
A document in securing the arrangement was signed last week Wednesday between the resident Chinese Ambassador, Ou Boqian and Minister of Youth and Sports, Emmalin Pierre.
The money is being provided by one of the Provinces in China.
Ambassador Boqian noted that during a visit to Grenada earlier this year, the Vice Mayor of Guang Dong Province, Jiehua Mai, was briefed by her about the Imani Programme.
She said she explained to the Major the importance of the programme to the young people of the country and this is now being rewarded.
The money, estimated at US$18M, will go towards paying tuition fees for the Imani Trainees.
The Imani programme is a critical component of the plans drawn up by the Keith Mitchell-led government in St. George’s to prepare the nation’s youngsters for the job market.
