Caribbean Disaster Mitigation and Community Empowerment Initiative UNITED CARIBBEAN TRUST- school wish list

School damaged by Ivan Following damage assessment in the schools of Carriacou, United Caribbean met with the principals of the schools. It was agreed that the concept of Barbados and Trinidad schools twinning or adopting a school in Carriacou and Grenada was an excellent idea.

Carriacou schoolWith that in mind, the United Caribbean team documented the pupils, their schools and the damages sustained, in order to set a framework on which we could build. Lists of schools' needs for supplies to be donated are posted on

Schools may be helped by their counterparts throughout the Caribbean.

Bougles school in the Methodist Church hallSome schools are linked to local churches,(ie. Anglican, Roman Catholic and Methodist). These organisations will be approached to encourage the youth in Barbadian churches to become involved in this very special 'School Twinning Programme'

Chat rooms between the twinned schools could produce a modern day 'pen pal' arrangement as teachers felt this exercise could be integral to students' IT training.

Click on the 'school challenges' on the side bar to learn about the schools on the island and how your school can help.
