Story

2017 has been a tough year in the Caribbean - the shocking scenes of devastation from two major hurricanes have filled our TV screens and the effect on very poor communities is obvious. The Caribbean we love lives on a financial knife-edge. Tourism brings vital income but things we take for granted in the UK like education are desperately short of resources and in some ares they hardly function at all.

Our project, "Teach the Children", is a joint venture between our clients and us which will provide desperately needed funds to support specific schools and establishments in the Caribbean.

We have idenified three places initially - 2 in Grenada and 1 in Bequia - where we can see that funding is much needed. Importantly we are satisifed that funds we provide will be used effectively and efficiently in the education of young people.

We have chosen to help the following three organisations first - but more to follow!

Samaritan Presbyterian School, St Mark's, Grenada.
Despite limited funding the school is doing a wonderful job of encouraging the students in every possible way. Great results have been achieved academically but the school also focuses on developing all the talents the pupils have - in sport, art and crafts.

Sunshine School of Bequia.
The school teaches young people who have a range of physical and mental issues. Up to 30 students aged between 5 and 19 are given enormous assistance, with the aim of bringing their abilities up the level where they can graduate to the conventional mainstream schools.

Grenada Community Library.
This is a remarkable project based in the heart of St George's, the capital of Grenada. The library's aim is to encourage a wide range of reading and writing skills amongst some of the poorest children in the capital. These children have very little access to books let alone computers so our assistance will be invaluable. The library also runs art classes and literacy workshops.

Your funds will help with the daily operational costs and running the after school program for local children. Thank you!
