1HOW WE HELP
The Trust recognizes some of the monumental challenges facing Barbadian educators and is endeavoring to instigate change through the sponsorship of numerous schools, charities and not for profit organizations positively affecting the lives of thousands of children.

• Primary school counselling, with counsellors working at 21 selected schools and the new horizons academy.
