Grace Bay Realty Continues to Support Self-Sufficiency in the Turks & Caicos Islands

Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands

Lyle Schmidek, Managing Director of Grace Bay Realty, a real estate company serving the Turks & Caicos Islands and a Christie’s Great Estates affiliate, granted $10,000 to two local entrepreneurs to increase self-sufficiency within the Islands.

Grace Bay Realty’s TCI Self-Sufficiency Project proudly approved recipients Mr. Emmanuel Missick and Ms. Kacy Dee Higgs. Each recipient pledges to repay the $5,000 to the project’s Regeneration Fund after their first and second year, allowing the original investment to self-generate future capital injections into the fund. The grants were evaluated by a panel comprised of representatives from First Caribbean, Royal Bank, Scotiabank, Saunders & Co. and Grace Bay Realty.

In December Grace Bay Realty donated $5,000 to the Turks & Caicos Farmers’ & Community Association (TCFCA) in an effort to initiate TCFCA’s creation.

Now Grace Bay Realty's next goal is to see that a Farming & Sustainability Market be built in Providenciales. To date, Saunders & Co., Lee and Astwood Architects and Benchmark Survey Associates have all volunteered their time and resources to the project. When finished the market will provide an excellent venue for local vendors to sell locally made and grown products, as well as be a learning hub.
