Appointment of New CEO


Dear Colleagues and Friends of the Foundation,

On behalf of the Heroes Foundation, I would like to advise you of the leadership change for the Foundation.

I would like to start by welcoming Mrs. Najette Abraham as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Heroes Foundation. Najette brings with her a wealth of expertise, having coming from the banking sector with over 37 years’ experience in various capacities. She mirrors her professional expertise with her passion of working with young people at different levels, all in service of the greater good. She can be reached at the Foundation’s office (622-9255), her mobile (620-7061), and her e-mail( . Please join me in welcoming Najette to the Heroes Foundation!

I would also like to acknowledge and thank Najettes’ predecessor, Ms. Michele Celestine, for her sterling contribution as the Foundation’s outgoing leader. Her passion, energy and devotion to the Foundation has maintained the momentum of the Foundation’s Youth Development Program in our schools, as well as the Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentorship Program in our communities. She also significantly contributed to the Foundation now having our first presence in Tobago, and being poised for growth into the southwest peninsula of Trinidad.

The Board, management and employees of the Foundation wishes to express their deepest gratitude and sincerest thanks to Michelle for the contribution she has made to the organization, and wish her all the best in her future endeavors. We also are delighted to have Najette take the reins of the Foundation and lead us towards further achievements, as we move forward with continuing our vision of “Creating the Next Generation of Heroes from the Current Generation of Youth”.
