PHILIPSBURG–Every year St. Maarten Cable TV nominates an organisation for a grant from the Caribbean Cable and TV Association Community Programme (CCTA) and this year St. Maarten Cable TV nominated the Shoot Hoops, Not Guns project. The project was one of many in the region that received a donation of US $1,200.
St. Maarten Cable TV Managing Director Beulah Jonis said, “Following that presentation to the foundation in May, we approached several of our channel providers for assistance. One of the first to step up to the plate was Gulfcom, who is the provider of several channels we have on our line-up.
“Gulfcom selected Gone Viral TV, Channel 284, to donate 2,500 T-Shirts for the Shoot Hoops, Not Guns project, which the organisation’s committee will distribute to the schools in St. Maarten. This is in order to increase the awareness on (gun) violence in our community and have dialogues started on how to curb the violence. Together with GVTV, we are honoured to be able to be part of this community programme.”
Gone Viral TV, also known as GVTV, is a channel based in Barbados and distributed exclusively by Gulfcom Inc. Servicing pay-TV operators in the Caribbean, North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia, GVTV broadcasts popular Internet-based content that has aired previously on YouTube, Vimeo and other online networks.
