Adopt a Caribbean School is a
new programme being introduced which enables a church, either
from within the Caribbean or Internationally, to help and support
schools through the Inter School Christian Fellowship, Son Shine
Clubs or After School Clubs within our local Caribbean schools
or churches. The programme will start in Haiti,
and rapidly extend, God willing, into Dominica, Barbados, Trinidad,
Antigua, St Lucia, Guyana and Suriname.
United Caribbean Trust has established
a Caribbean equivalent to Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas
Child, we have called our project 'Make
We have extended the project into numerous
schools within Barbados and it seems destined to become an
end of term activity. Enabling the children of Barbados to
send a shoe box of love and hope into desperately poor situations,
such as Haiti, the Carib Territory of Dominica, Brazil and
This is a perfect opportunity to get involved within schools
and establish linkages necessary for the Adopt a School Programme.
This school is crying out
for a Working Holiday or Mission Holiday team to visit and paint
the walls... can you help?
Caribbean Mission Holiday Packages
The opportunities that this Adopt
a School programme opens within the Christian Mission Holidays
market is immense. This is a niche market that UCT seeks to
tap to establish Kingdom Building business opportunities to
channel money into the Trust to build on the already established
Child Sponsorship Programme.

practical version of their mission statement - Leading
students to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ,
Building them up to their full potential
in Him, and to Equipping them to serve Him.
We look forward to the day when teams of American
and European youths can visit the Caribbean for school ministry
sharing the love of Jesus in a powerful exciting way and having
fun at the same time.
The benefits to be gained for participating churches include:
• the opportunity for lending compassionate support to students
from the Caribbean;
• the learning experience of a cultural exchange of information
on respective countries;
• the opportunity to form long-lasting friendships via Internet
• the exchange of ideas, opinions and “a glimpse”
at the lifestyle of another child;
• The opportunity to visit other islands of the Caribbean.
• The opportunity for International schools to get involved
in the School Twinning Programme
The Schools Twinning Educational
Empowerment programme has been designed to establish linkages
between the schools of the Caribbean, expanding exponentially
to enjoy the camaraderie resulting from a global network.
It is the intention of United Caribbean Trust
to create a dedicated web page for each participating school;
this page will be useful in lending encouragement to the potential
for IT Programmes. It will facilitate familiarity with computers
and will be designed to attract equipment and other “wish
list” donations, globally. This page is a framework
that teachers and pupils can build on.
Here is how it all began
- the first concept of the School Twinning Programme
Following the devastation of
hurricane Ivan in September 2004, principles, parents and
pupils were interviewed in an attempt to test the market for
this new project and a very positive response has now encouraged
the United Caribbean Trust to proceed with the programme in
Barbados, Dominica, Haiti, Guyana and Suriname.

A suggestion was made to look into twinning
schools from Barbados and Trinidad with schools in Carriacou,
Haiti, Guyana and Suriname, this was met with enthusiasm and
with that in mind we agreed to create web pages for each school
with a view of building on these pages as Caribbean and International
support is obtained. <
