The project, conceptualised by VINSAVE and comprised of Parenting and Skills Training components, was funded by the Mustique Charitable Trust, with the objectives of enhancing the women’s capacities to parent more effectively and provide them with skills for self-employment.

The programme was conducted over a one– year period, where the women received training in bread and pastry making from Betty Child of Georgetown and parenting training from Vinsave. The women were also exposed to a number of workshop sessions from Government and other organizations.

The Graduation Ceremony heard remarks from Lavinia Gunn, administrator, Mustique Charitable Trust and Janice Fraser, director of Vinsave. The feature address was delivered by Walter Child.

The group of women has pledged to continue with various community activities, including parenting training, support to the elderly and the Byera Pre-school.
