We want to thank you for considering The WISH Centre and below is an update of some of the work that your past donations have enabled us to achieve.

Major repairs have been undertaken on PERYL House

Your initial donation enabled us to undertake major repairs and refurbishments in PEARYL House and Angels Annex. Creating a bright, clean, homely environment.

Project PEARYL will be a Project for Enriching And Restoring Young Lives. We are seeking to establish a Crisis Centre for the youth of Barbados. With help from the Barbados Community Foundation we have been able to upgrade these properties in preparation for the Crisis Centre.

Bunk beds were able to be stained and installed in some of the bedrooms.

The west facing bedroom has two bunk beds and a chest of drawers.
The north east facing bedroom has five single beds.

Bedrooms have been repainted and curtain rails erected, thanks to the local hotels that donated curtains and bedspreads making this north east facing bedroom a delightful room with distant views of Skeetes Bay.

The south east facing bedroom will be able to sleep 13 little girls within our PEARYL Program.

The south east facing bedroom was once the master bedroom and is an enormous room with 4 bunks and 5 single beds.

The bathroom has 4 toilets and 4 showers and has been recently tiled and upgraded.

Summer 2012

We were truly honoured to host Dr. Brenda Caldwell in Barbados at The WISH Centre as our first national outreach to the youth of our island in the summer of 2012.

We are truly honored to be hosting her in Barbados

Dr. Brenda Caldwell, affectionately known as “Dr. B”, is one of the most life changing empowerment speakers on the circuit in America today.

With an uncanny ability to reach youth, Dr. B is also called the “Doctor of Hope” for this generation

Day of Hope for girls was a powerful day of interactive healing at The WISH Centre with Dr. B for girls ages 9-15 years old in the Barbados communities.

Dr. B empowers both adult and youth audiences by profoundly dealing with hard issues as well as heart issues in a way that leaves a lasting impact. She is insightful, informative and inspirational.

Dr. B empowers both adult and youth

How wonderful to welcome Dr. B to Barbados

During the Day of Hope for God's Diamonds, held at The WISH Centre she addressed issues such as low self-esteem, low self-worth, unforgiveness, anger, abuse and hurt.


The girls refused to continue to be victims as they were healed from past hurts & damaged emotions.

It gave us the opportunity to get involved in some great childrens' ministry.

And it wasn't all serious there were great games and fun was had by all!

There was field trips to Three Houses Park, where the children spent time relaxing under the trees being taught about drug awareness and even found time to explore the natural spring that runs through the park.
