The Esimaje Foundation has launched a project targeting youth in East Port of Spain, in a bid to create a better future for them and the country.
The foundation was founded by Dr Oti Esimaje, who believes projects like these are sorely needed in such high needs areas.
Dr Esimaje spoke with 103.1FM News today.

Tonight, as part of this initiative, the foundation hosts a fund-raising dinner called Doctors for a Cause 2018.
The featured speaker is Dr Wayne Frederick, a Trinidadian-born surgeon, and president of Howard University in Washington D.C.
Dr Frederick says he knows too well the challenges that students like the ones in “high needs areas” face.
Citizens can also help, by donating time, resources or financial assistance.
