To help children and adolescents who have been traumatized in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, we designed a 3-tiered intervention plan:
1) mentor training,
2) Stephen Ministry training, and
3) mental wellness and spiritual counseling training.
See what Fr. Alando Williams from St. Vincent and the Grenadines has to say about our help.
We have enrolled mentors and initiated mentor training (step 1 of the plan). However, the global reaction to COVID-19 caused us to slow down. We want to pick up with mentor training and have a pilot program for one year, learn and modify the program, and expand to serve more significant numbers of children.
Thanks to a matching grant from a generous family, the Stephen Ministry training is fully funded! We expect Stephen Ministry to serve children and adolescents and then expand to adults.
