United Caribbean Trust (UCT) began as a faith-based organization to help the victims of hurricane Ivan in the tri island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique during September 2004.
What started as a primary concern to help render relief after damage assessment and consultation with community leaders has swiftly grown into an initiative fueled by a ‘vision’.
A vision that seeks not only to help the Caribbean but other countries in establishing a series of Empowerment programs that will bring socioeconomic changes to those who reside in impoverished countries focusing especially on women and children.

In the time of its existence and operations UCT‘s vision and its programs has progressed from the shores of the Caribbean to bridging the gap back to Africa and in 2007 we established our first Africa base in Mbeya, Tanzania. Building and refurbishing a Women’s Empowerment compound that has now over the years seen hundreds of women go through the six month ‘sewing school’ leaving a life of poverty and dependency to embark on a bright future with self respect and dignity.

  Utilizing the medium of net-working its Founder, Jenny Tryhane, has met and instituted partnerships and working alliances with several NGO’S, churches and individuals in various islands and countries who all want to play a role in the socioeconomic development of countries in the Caribbean and Africa and to ensure that the worth-while ‘vision’ of the Trust becomes a reality.

This was seen especially as UCT became involved in helping Guyana following the floods in 2005 in a hope to help aid and enhance the socioeconomic development and rebuilding of such countries following natural disasters.

This was particularly essential during the Haiti earthquake in 2010 when Ms. Tryhane was in Haiti during the earthquake and remained for over 3 months to ensure safe and transparent distribution of three containers sent up by UCT from Barbados.

UCT sees it as essential to be knowledgeable of International and Regional Governmental mandates which in essence will give them insight and guideline on how best to develop their socioeconomic programs which will boost and compliment the noble objectives of these Governments and esteemed institutions.

After Research, Consultation and the forming of strategic Partnerships over the years the Trust now sees itself poised to fully undertake and bring to fruition its Vision.

Objectives :

  1. The Care, Nurture and Rehabilitation of those affected by National Disasters.
  2. The relief of Poverty
  3. Improvement to the Environment.
  4. The advancement of Health and Education
  5. The Development of Humane resources Skills
  6. To unite the children of the Caribbean through Faith, Sports, Travel and Music (including arts, dance and drama)

As time has gone on the UCT’s Objectives whilst remaining the same has now broaden to include:

Africa Appeal

As time has gone on the UCT’s Objectives whilst remaining the same has now broaden to include the African Initiative of UCT called African Appeal. This was birthed to bring relief and assistance to the poor and many who were without food or necessary supplies within Africa.

African Appeal has not only sensitized UCT to the needs of our brothers and sisters in the African Diaspora but has established viable links with Churches, N.G.O’s and individuals in the numerous countries.

In September 2015 Jenny Tryhane the founder of UCT, led the Barbados arm of the Mission team to Africa joined by Lisa Gardier, the Vice Chair.

Thanks to Ramona Eastmond, seen here, founder of Set the Captives Free for your help in establishing our Africa Ministry.

At the end of 2005 UCT sent a representative to Africa for over 6 months to lay the foundation for its endeavors there, to identify areas of concern, to liaise and form links with organizations, churches and individuals to bring such projects to fruition.

Meeting took place with Governmental officials in the Ministry of Education and work started to identify the needs within schools and orphanages. Lands and other faculties and infrastructure were identified that would be needed to bring see the vision become a reality.

Such interaction, dialogue and trips have led to established centers and projects in Malawi and Tanzania including recently the establishment of the After School PowerClubs as part of our child sponsorship program in both countries as well as Uganda, Zambia and DR Congo.

The objective of UCT is to establish PowerPlay Child Care Centers throughout Africa and eventually in places like Haiti, Suriname and Guyana.

Discipline the children utilizing the KIMI PowerClub curriculums and other character building initiatives.

The program aims to teach and encourage children to become active members of their community.
  • Strive for excellence.
  • Value family relationships.
  • Feel loved and valued

Aims and Objectives:

•To purchase 20 acre plots of land in the various regions throughout Africa to serve as PowerPlay Child Care Centers.

•Constructing of low cost buildings and facilities including PowerPlay Child Care Centers, schools if not available, youth centers/worship sanctuary and vocational training schools.

•Developing recreational play areas for children's education and training, and for leisure activities including football fields to encourage Sports Evangelism and other children's ministries such as KidsGames and HIV/AIDS educational programs such as Kicking AIDS Out.

•Developing enterprising projects such as farming and animal husbandry to provide sustainability for the residents.

•Planting a range of fodder for livestock animals, (i.e free range chickens, goats and pigs)

•Developing permaculture gardens designing human settlements and agricultural systems that are modeled on the relationships found in natural ecologies.

•Producing income generating crops on the agricultural land to enable the projects to be self-funding and sustainability including fish farms.

•Providing training and employment opportunities on site for older orphans in the form of vocational training

In 2007 UCT established a local Barbadian ministry called the shoebox ‘Make Jesus Smile’ project. These shoeboxes were used as the catalyst that got United Caribbean Trust into the schools and churches in Barbados, into the hearts of the Barbadian public and ultimately into places like Haiti, the Maroons in the interior of Suriname, the Carib Territoriy in Dominica and the AmerIndians in Guyana.

UCT's Make Jesus Smile shoebox project has been a great success and it has proven that the children on Barbados and we believe the Caribbean enjoy actively helping children that are less privileged than them.

Thousands of shoeboxes have been wrapped and packed by the children of Barbados and shipped up by container to Haiti.

UCT Founder and Director Jenny Tryhane has undertaken the task to visit Haiti many times now, meeting with key personnel including the Mayor of Jacmel and St Marc. She has established strong links with churches and schools, identified lands and districts for agro projects and viable business ventures and environmental projects that will enhance the Haitian communities and play a pivotal role in the socioeconomic development of Haiti.
It is greatly anticipated that this initiative will bring empowerment and social mobility to those who were once referred to as being dis-enfranchised and will seek to alleviate poverty and can be seen as a small but significant cog in the wheel of economic change that will help the United Nations achieve its mandate of eradicating poverty globally by the year 2015.
