Nassau, The Bahamas – ALIV, The Bahamas’ newest telecommunications company partnered with A Celebration of Love along with Member of Parliament for Bain and Grants Town, Hon. Travis Robinson to bring smiles and relief to thousands of children this past Saturday (August 26). The event, held at the Southern Recreation Grounds for children and parents in the community, featured bouncing castles, face painting, free food and drinks and entertainment.

ALIV provided 1,000 drawstring bags for the children filled with notebooks, pens, pencils and water bottles.


“This is really our base. This is where most of our first customers came from and they are the ones that need the most support. As a corporate citizen, giving back is something that we believe strongly in and you will see over the next couple of weeks more and more from ALIV not just within the community but with schools, parents and teachers. Congratulations to Mr. Robinson and his team,” Gravette Brown, ALIV Chief Business Developer, said.

“I just want to thank ALIV for coming on board and supporting us. The response was really appreciated by the children and parents so we just want to thank you. I am compassionate about my people and especially the children in this community and so this was just a meaningful way for us to give the children something memorable to remember before heading back to the classroom,” Travis Robinson, Member of Parliament, Bain and Grants Town, said.


Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Hubert Minnis and Miss World Bahamas, Geena Thompson, who is also an ALIV ambassador, assisted with handing out the ALIV bags to those in attendance along with other ALIV personnel.

ALIV also held a back to school event in Exuma. The company also partnered with the Haitian Bahamian community and the Jamaican Bahamian Association on Saturday at the Our Lady Peace of God Church and R.M. Bailey Park respectively with similar back to school events. Events are also planned for the upcoming weekend in New Providence, Grand Bahama, Abaco, Andros and Eleuthera.
