We provide support to under-served members of our community with education, nature care and conservation, food security and growing, aspiring for legacy creation.
Over lockdown, as the pandemic impacted us in Trinidad & Tobago just as it has around the world, we have been responding to urgent needs for food and items to keep families well as work became impossible for many and state support was not always available. We successfully achieved 840 Food Hampers Delivered (Mar 28 to Oct 7th 2020) including over 200 Baby Care Packages and Elder Care Packages.
Each hamper lasts a family for some time (3-6 weeks).
In this time, we had to close down much of our public-facing activity and have not been able to generate income as we usually do.
The focus now is to get our centre up and running so we can begin to generate income again and cover more ground.
In addition we are directing funds as follows:

The programme has had overwhelming response and has been praised for its successful delivery of Educational, Cultural and Environmental / Climate lessons as well as Nation Building by Library Staff, Teachers, Parents and children because of the creative use of a Magical Portable Children’s Set and Props; sessions also include Music and Musical Instruments, Cultural Artifacts, Puppetry, Story Telling, Slide show presentations and Live Animals.
A team of qualified dedicated like minded individuals have joined in the work we are doing in the Community. Our Santa Rosa Heritage & Learning Resource Center & Kulturkafe launch Easter 2020... was postponed in February and ALL OUR RESOURCES WERE TURNED TOWARD EMERGENCY MEDICAL SUPPLIES, FRESH FOOD AND DRY GOODS FOR OVER 500 FAMILIES IN DIRE NEED OF SUPPLIES....
Your support will help us keep our projects going, and allow us to continue to support rescue animals, communities and individuals in this challenging time.
Do share and all donations however small are very welcome.
