Congrats CCC Graduates!

CCC trainees (Cycle 1501) graduated from the CCC programme on 25 March, 2015. We wish ALL our graduates and Award recipients the very best!
In the words of Shastri Ramnarase, recipient of the Programme Director's Award,
CCC gave me hope.
CCC proved to me that I can and will make it,
even through the roughest of situations.
I now feel purpose, appreciated, respected,
and people now expect a bright future for me.
