CARIBBEAN TRUST- after school kids club

encourage learning through play, foster cooperation and strengthen
friendships through planned and supervised activities.

The Afternoon Kids Club will have significant benefits to children
participating as it will give a child the opportunity to ‘be
a kid’ again. A buffet of nutritious and carefully selected
fruit, drinks and snacks will be available for children during the
sessions which will run a minimum of three days per week (Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday ) from 3 – 5:30 pm.
Teachers are encouraged to visit and integrate and transportation
can be arranged but pooling will be encouraged.
The teams working with the AKC will be housed at
Cassada Bay and United Caribbean
is able to facilitate 6 trainers per six week session.
These have been carefully vetted and are well trained
‘kid-friendly’ adults whose backgrounds include: acting,
dancing, psychology, nursing, counseling, teaching, horticultural
These individuals will be capable of identifying and coping with
the long term symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and will
encourage dialogue and sharing to combat the effects of the Ivan
Experience. It is expected that the Afternoon Kids Club will continue
for the duration of our projected stay at Cassada Bay.
United Caribbean can offer students and youth groups accommodation
for 6 girls and 6 boys in two dometory style Youth Hostel type accommodation
PLUS two semi detached villas housing 4 teachers
The separate lounge dining room is basic but ideal as doors lead
out onto balconies with sumptuous, peaceful views.
The views from the balconies, which have minor weather
damages, and major termite infestations, are delightful!
Flamboyant trees provide shade between the chalets,
The gardens are being tidied and will be a riot of colour if only
the 'kids' could be kept off of the garden beds (I refer to the
baby goats that roam the grounds)
