We understand the foundation of a nation’s development is through the support of education. Co-op Bank has made significant investments into the educational development of its communities at all age levels. Current and past community projects in Education include:
Co-op Bank’s commitment to health is through its Healthier Lifestyles programme, which aims to create an awareness of healthy living and physical exercise. The programme also intends to promote a proactive approach to health issues and make vital information concerning health matters available to the public. To achieve these objectives, the bank developed two (2) initiatives: a Health Exposition (HealthEx) and a family fun walk dubbed “Pump it Up!” which has been held every year since 2009.
For decades, Co-op Bank has been a consistently strong advocate for the development of sports and local athletes in the tri-island state. The investments the bank has made over the years have positively impacted the lives of talented sportsmen both on and off the field.
Current and past community projects in Sports include:
The Bank’s commitment to its communities transcends the classroom and overflows into the environment. The adoption of five (5) bus shelters in Grenada and one (1) in Carriacou ensures a strong presence in the communities while providing commuters with shelter against the elements. Co-op Bank also proudly maintains and beautifies two (2) of the nation’s largest roundabouts located in Plains, St. Patrick and the Sir Eric Matthew Gairy Botanical Gardens roundabout in Tanteen, St. George.
It doesn’t stop there. Co-op Bank also maintains forty (40) road safety signs strategically located just before the pedestrian crossings at all nineteen (19) secondary schools in Grenada, in an effort to protect the nation’s children while entering and leaving the school grounds. In Carriacou, Co-op Bank maintains fourteen (14) village road signs, ensuring that road users are aware of their surroundings as they traverse the northern part of the island.
Co-op Bank believes that our culture is the life blood of our nation’s rich heritage and fascinating history, and that developing our unique culture has the potential to positively impact the lives of all Grenadians. For this reason, this community pillar has gained Co-op Bank’s unwavering support for many years.
