On Saturday 28th November, client, contractor and community representatives, gathered to honour and celebrate with us, 60 amazing women who graduated from the Successful Women on Towards Self-Reliance or SWOTS Programme. The ceremony, which was held in Mayaro, also recognised persons who have contributed to the success of the programme across the years.
Massy Wood Group established the SWOTS programme in 2008, after a needs assessment in the Mayaro / Guayaguayare communities, revealed a need for a social programme that targeted women and the issues they faced. The programme, which has been entered into and won several CSR awards, including Wood Group PSN’s Living Our Values Awards, 2012, has seen proven results, whereby these empowered women, continue to be exemplars for other women in their communities.
The future looks bright as the success of SWOTS will now pave the way for establishing a Junior Programme. Once again, we congratulate these women for their hard work and commitment to making a difference in their lives and those of their families!
