In May 2024, International Game Technology (IGT) Trinidad and Tobago employees celebrated the company’s Global Giving Month Initiative by giving back to Amica House, a home for socially displaced and at-risk girls ages three to 17. From upgrading the kitchen garden to organising the Home’s library, IGT employees lent a hand wherever possible to enhance the living space for the 16 residents.

Marking the moment! Shavindra Tewarie-Singh, IGT People & Transformation Regional Senior Manager for the Caribbean, pauses from her volunteer work in the Amica House library to give a quick smile.

The IGT team gave the computer room a fresh coat of paint and conducted a maintenance check on the equipment, all previously donated by IGT, to ensure that the space will be ready for the girls participating in IGT’s Coding and Robotics Rock! Camp in July. Amica House is one of 18 local NGOs in IGT’s After School Advantage (ASA) programme, the company’s flagship community initiative devoted to providing youth with access to technology and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education opportunities.
