Freeport, Grand Bahama, Bahamas — Prime Minister and Treasurer, Hon. Philip Davis has some good news for the people of Grand Bahamas.

After hearing the glowing reports first hand and watching a special documentary, Prime Minister Davis announced the continuation of the Beautiful Grand Bahamas Project, which has employed hundreds of Grand Bahamians, across the island.

“Beautiful Grand Bahamas will continue until other growth and other projects can proceed,” Davis said.

I want you to be there too.

“This program will be your feeder program for bigger things.”

The Beautiful Grand Bahamas Initiative was founded by the Grand Bahamas Minister. Ginger Moxie not only helped clean up the communities around the island, but was also the means by which many unemployed Grand Bahamians were able to regain hope and dignity and the opportunity to earn a living again.

Needless to say, the Prime Minister’s announcement of the continuation of the program was met with loud applause, cheers and admiration during the ceremony at the Trip Circle.

As Minister of Grand Bahamas, Minister Moxie will continue to work as transitional housing for families and single mothers who may need to preserve, restore and lend a hand until they can “get back on their feet.” I have decided that I can use it.

Workers at Beautiful Grand Bahama played a major role in cleaning the property and restoring the home. In addition to Colab’s offices in Grand Bahama Province, one of his restored homes in Trip Circle will be used as a resource center.

Prime Minister Davis said, “I expected the Ministers and Departments of Grand Bahama to take an innovative approach in tackling the island’s long-standing problems.” , and we believe this model can be used throughout the Bahamas, and we plan to do modeling nationwide.”

“The primary focus of Collab’s Beautiful Grand Bahama is the empowerment of the Bahamas. It’s not just about providing jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities, it’s about changing lives. I call on you to further expand what can only be seen as a revolutionary initiative that brings true collaboration for

We have created this ministry with a new mandate to partner with institutions, and the community at large, to support the basic needs of our residents and to support the growth and development of Grand Bahama Island.

“As we know, Grand Bahama was severely impacted by Hurricane Dorian, and the economic and social impact of the Covid 19 pandemic has further hampered recovery efforts. Grand Bahama has suffered terribly. I was there.

“This is why we believe it is essential that the Department of Grand Bahama is mandated to liaise with other ministries and to work with the Port Authority of Grand Bahama to work in the best interests of Grand Bahama. is.

“We felt it was appropriate to establish these partnerships to effectively execute this island project and realize the long-told potential of Grand Bahama Island. A ministry built on foundations, my administration recognizes that these partnerships will provide much-needed relief to the people of Grand Bahamas and are vital to the island’s economic growth.”
