Donation from ADNEXUS

An Association of Dominicans in the North-east United States called ADNEXUS has made a donation of 18 sewing machines to local company Royal Globe Inc.

Royal Globe Inc. is an education and garment manufacturing company which offers training in vocational skills and operates a garment brand, Vee’s Couture.

The donation will facilitate the company’s training programs in sewing and other related vocational skills.

According to a press release the president of the organization, Sylma Brown stated that “ADNEXUS acknowledges the symbiotic connection with Royal Globe’s training program in sewing and humbly supports this initiative which enables it to deliver on one of its key objectives of uplifting and empowering Dominicans at home. We look forward to continuing to work together to make a difference in programs across the island.”

ADNEXUS is an organization formed by members of the Dominican diaspora residing in New Jersey in the United States.  It was formed in 2015 for the purpose of giving back to the Dominican society by supporting ventures that the organization believes can help to elevate the status of Dominicans and improve the lives and livelihood of all concerned.

“As an entrepreneur, when you associate with other organisations like ADNEXUS and they get the vision you have for your company and the society you work in, it really boosts your confidence and encourages you to do more within your organisation so I want to say thank you to ADNEXUS and to Sylma Brown for looking at our cause and donating to what we are doing,” miss Prince remarked.

Miss Avena Prince founder of Royal Globe Inc expressed her gratitude and says that this donation will be of significant benefit to the participants of the adult classes Royal Globe Inc offers and members of the Royal Globe children’s club .
