The Gozo University Group (GUG) has just celebrated its 30th anniversary with a reception held at Villa Fjorita, Marsalforn.
The organisation helps Gozitan students studying at the University of Malta as they embark on a new life, away from home.
Speaking at the reception, GUG President Maria Dimech underlined how the organisation has been a pillar of strength for those students in difficulty.
She said that “its star achievements include working to allow Gozitan students to sit for their exams from Gozo; fighting for a fair accommodation subsidy as well as securing a seat on the board for every decision taken that affected the Gozo Campus.”
The organisation is currently working to finalise a project, in collaboration with President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca to help those students with financial difficulty apply for benefits online.
Ms Dimech explained the struggles of being a Gozitan student, “The fact that you have to think for yourself, cook, clean, keep up with university was not easy. It is for these reasons that organisations like GuG were formed, to help me and students like me.”
The anniversary event was sponsored by GlobalCapital, which recently opened an office in Victoria, Gozo. A Gozitan himself, Chief Operations Officer Paul Said speaking at the event said, “GlobalCapital takes a vested interest in talent development in both Malta and Gozo. We want to give Gozitans the opportunity to have an office job, and from which to build a successful career. Setting up an office in Gozo is part of this goal of ours.”
The Gozo Office, in J. F. Kennedy Square, Victoria, opposite Arkadia shopping centre, is open by appointment. To book an appointment, call 21 342 342.
The office consists of a back office structure and is also open for clients by appointment offering Life Insurance, Health Insurance and Investment services.
