   Virgin Gorda Charitable Company Ltd.
 

The Virgin Gorda Charitable Company Limited is the brainchild of Christina Yates, formed in 1998 and officially established in 2001, the VGCCL is a BVI charitable company whose purpose is to use donations from expatriate homeowners, hoteliers, businesses, vacationers and belongers to fund programs and facilities for the young people of Virgin Gorda.  "VGCL are about constructing facilities to help develop the young creative minds of Virgin Gorda and make them into proud productive citizens"

 

In keeping with Government’s Legislative Agenda to develop and promote recreational and national sports programmes in the Territory in order to foster national pride, the BVI Government has partnered with the Virgin Gorda Charitable Company Limited (VGCCL) for the construction of a sports and recreational facility on Virgin Gorda.

 

Ground has been broken on a new 25-meter, 9-lane swimming pool that will be built at the Bregado Flax School in the Valley in Virgin Gorda.  The pool is the first endeavor of the Virgin Gorda Charitable Company, Ltd. whose focus will be enriching the lives of the young people on this island.  It is anticipated this pool will be used to start a competitive swim program in the British Virgin Islands, as well as inter-Caribbean youth competition.  The pool will also be used by the community of Virgin Gorda for recreational swimming and Water Safety Training. 

 

Adjacent to the primary pool, there will be a smaller pool designed for handicap access and instruction for younger children.  The facility will also have locker rooms, a grand stand and a state of the art timing system and scoreboard. 

 

Major funding for the VGCC will come from donations by expatriates homeowners, hoteliers, business owners and vacationers as a way of their giving back to the Virgin Gorda Community. The goal of the VGCC is to raise $500,000 annually to support youth programs for Virgin Gorda.
