We are committed to the young people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines! So we were delighted to team up with Summer Crash Academy Inc to provide psycho-social support to 7–12 year old children, who have been impacted or displaced due to the volcanic eruptions of La Soufriere.
Summer Crash Academy Incorporated is an organization that offers structured programs designed to meet the humanistic and psychological developmental needs of children. Their mobile workshops are essential psycho-social support to help the children. During the program students were kept meaningfully and gainfully occupied in creative arts and interactive presentations with the facilitator. Parents were also given tips on how to monitor their children whilst online.
The mobile workshops took place over a period of four days and was held at the following locations; Kingstown Preparatory School, Bethel High School, Buccament Bay Secondary and the Barrouallie Government School.
Children were exposed to a wealth of information which they can utilize not only for the present circumstance; but during the tenure of their lives. They learnt various skills and were actively engaged in the crafts they were taught. The facilitators were versed in specific areas and were creative with their approach; as well as producing items with the resources which were available. All resources were well managed and the children and parents were appreciative of this initiative. This is just one initiative that shows that together we can do so much more!
We will be announcing more initiatives over the coming weeks as we endeavour to keep our donors informed of how the Trust is supporting St. Vincent.
