Hon. Galmo Williams & Althea Ewing-Williams
Before his involvement with the Turks and Caicos government, Hon. Williams and his wife Althea were successful business owners here on Providenciales. Along with other key persons, the pair were instrumental and committed to the development of the Turks and Caicos AIDS Awareness Foundation. This fervor was fueled as the AIDS epidemic started to impact the Turks and Caicos; this included a family member’s diagnosis. The goal of the foundation was awareness and disease prevention through information dissemination.
The successful launch of the TCAAF lead to the establishment of several other foundations, including the Edward Gartland Youth Centre. The visionaries involved established the first teen oriented-facility in the TCI that provides a variety of positive, life-enhancing programs to help youth make healthy life decisions.
