As part of national efforts, YTEPP Limited has joined the fight against COVID-19. In an attempt to minimize risk and flatten the curve, YTEPP has embarked on the production of 2,500 cloth face masks for distribution to NGOs, with a special focus on at-risk youth and other vulnerable groups in society.

Production is being undertaken by Graduates and Tutors of YTEPP’s Garment Production and Fashion Design Programmes. This initiative is in response to Government’s strong recommendation that citizens venturing outdoors, should wear fabric face masks, in an effort to curtail the spread of COVID-19.

YTEPP looks upon this venture as an opportunity to give back to our nation, at a time when our country is in need, and where we are all called upon to be our brother’s keeper.

The distribution of the face masks will begin the week of 20th April 2020.
