Imagine me... is a humanitarian project which seeks to educate Primary and Secondary school children on the condition of children and especially orphans in the Caribbean, Central and South America and the rest of the world.

Imagine me... UCT launched this program on November 20th 2007 on Universal Children's Day. Since 1954, United Nations and UNESCO observes 20 November as "a day to be observed worldwide creating fraternity and understanding between children.

Youth impacting youth is the primary goal of this project.

Barbadian children and teenagers within the Primary and Secondary schools can learn more about different countries and cultures, about poverty, child health and education, the rights of a child and how they can get involved and help.

Within the schools taking part in this project, children and teenagers will be given the opportunity to produce and create gifts to send to less privileged children in Barbados, the Caribbean, the Americas, South America and other nations of the world including African countries such as Malawi and Tanzania.

The "Kisses from Heaven" t-shirts... designed and hand painted by the school children of Barbados giving them an opportunity to sow a seed of love into the lives of the children in Africa and to look beyond their own borders.

Poems, prayers, colouring books, greetings cards and other exciting tokens of their love can be made for the children in the program.

United Caribbean Trust seeks to introduce a Child Awareness Day every month featuring children from around the world. The Barbadian children will be given information on the life of the children in the countries featured that month.

Seen here a Carib Indian in the Carib Territory in Dominica learning about the children of Barbados taking part in the Make Jesus Smile shoe box program.

On Child Awareness Day the students will be encouraged to bring a bottle of cold water to school instead of purchasing a bottle of soda. This will be a sign of solidarity with the children around the world that often times do not even have water to drink!

The US $1 saved will be collected and donated to the UCT's Child Sponsorship Program established within the country being featured that month.

UCT is committed to investing US $30 to purchase a BioSand Water Filter from C.W.H for every family within our Child Sponsorship Program within Haiti .

Complying with two of the Millennium Development Goals

  • Reduce by two thirds the mortality rate among children under five
  • Reduce by half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water

BioSand Water Filters are an adaptation of slow-sand filtration, designed for use at the household level. The filter removes water-borne bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and other organisms that cause diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever, and amoebic dysentery. The filter also strains out the particles and organic matter that cause cloudiness, unpleasant taste, colour, and odour.

UCT Founder, Jenny Tryhane travelled to Haiti in December 2007 and looked at the feasibility of establishing this project into Jacmel and Bon Repos in Port au Prince.
Two persons from each area are being sponsored for a week of intensive training at CWH in March.
UCT is seeking sponsorship to purchase two moulds and the equipment needed to establish two production centres to manufacture our own moulds in Jacmel and Bon Repos.

COST:
Training per person US $200 for the week including transportation, food and accomodation. Cost of mould US
