an interview with
the Barbados Advocate
newspaper Jenny Tryhane, founder of United Caribbean Trust
stated "When we go in with the shoeboxes it offers an
opportunity to photograph and document children. Of course,
it is an opportunity for children in Barbados to share, give
and experience the true reason for Christmas."
She added, "the long term
objective is the child
sponsorship program which is US$30 a month. The
thirty dollars is subdivided into education, family empowerment,
and after school club", Jenny explained.
A big thank you to the St Gabriel's
