I want to take this opportunity to big up the DTR Foundation on the tremendous job that they've been doing in Jamaica and the diaspora. My foundation (Botswana Foundation) has been a beneficiary of their work. We were in the middle of planning our annual Christmas funday and treat, we called up Mr. Hamilton to make a contribution and he didn't hesitate to confirm his participation. Within a few weeks he made good on his commitment. Sufficing to Say the treat went well. And I must say that Mr. Hamilton did took the time out to come and show his support at the event.

The DTR Foundation, Westmoreland U-17 league has taught me to drive and put myself in a direction. Responsibility, accountability, having that drive, something to work for, having something at the end to strive for and working with people creating a relationship, that's what it is all about. It's good being able to work with teammates and communicating well. You have to be able to work with coaches and fit in regardless of the situation, adopting yourself and building relationships.
That's what works in life. Those are the things that made me who I am today.
Thank you for the continuous support by the DTR Foundation over the past 2 years. Your support has really helped us to be able to ensure that our students get a chance to develop and showcase their talents in football. As we continue into this year, we trust that our partnership will continue to grow and produce greater rewards.
