For decades Republic Bank has been engaged in making a difference in communities throughout Grenada. Our philanthropic programmes have been focused on developing the skills, talent and intellectual prowess of the people of Grenada and the Caribbean archipelago. Through our support of community outreach programmes, sport, culture, poverty alleviation, education and entrepreneurship we have continued to partner with individuals and groups in the communities in which we operate to promote self-sufficiency, development and hope for the future.
Located in Tempe, St. George, Dorothy Hopkin Centre for the Disabled is a home for mentally and physically challenged children. It has been in existence for over ten (10) years and works diligently to improve the social needs of disabled persons. Under its social investment initiative, Power to Make a Difference, Republic Bank has contributed in excess of EC$563,000.00 for the construction of an additional wing to accommodate 16 children at the Centre. On completion of construction, the new wing will include a doctor's examination room and a games and activities room.
On Friday, April 11, 2008, the project officially commenced with the turning of the soil by Managing Director of the Bank, Mr. Daniel A. Roberts and the President of the Centre, Mrs. Barbara Calliste.
