1. St. Lucia Girls Circle

    I have organized and facilitated an empowerment group for girls between the ages of 9-16 called Girls Circle.  The Circle provides a support system for the girls with role models and peers alike.  One of the sessions during the 10 week Relationship building segment was traditional peace tea ceremony.  The girls could not talk and were asked to only communicate through eye contact while they shared tea and biscuits.

    I love how each child's personality comes out when they are consciously trying to pose for a photo.

    This is a picture of a few fourth graders who I worked with for two years.  I feel the lighting and the closeness of the photo enhances their expressions and beauty succinctly. 

  4. St. Lucia Coal Pots for Care

    In the course of my year long after school programme here in St. Lucia, I held a three day workshop on how to make coal pots.  It included 15 children ages 7-16 and involved both girls and boys.  All of the children took to it very fast.  They were given lessons on how to use the coal pots following.

  7. St. Vincent and the Grenadines A Vincentian Calypsonian

    In 2009, my wife and I were involved in a project at our post in Georgetown, St Vincent, to honor the service of community leaders around the area.  As part of this project we made short videos about each one of them to memorialize them for future generations.  This video is of a local calypsonian, Gao (Godwin Augustus Olliviere), who lives in a village down the road from us.  I hope you enjoy his song and the interview!
