  12. St. Vincent and the Grenadines Child's Play

    As Tia smiled for the camera, the scene in the background reflects a predominant aspect of child-rearing in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Many children receive "licks" from parents and teachers as a result of misbehaving. Corporal punishment is widely practiced in schools with teachers pacing the classrooms, leather belt in hand. In this image, Bianca raises a hand to "Peek-a-boo" after having just been irritated by his teasing.

  2. St. Vincent and the Grenadines Finding Truth in Bakes and Cocoa

    “When yah learn from yah eldahs yah learn de truth.” My host mother, Ms. Toney, imparted these words of wisdom to me during my first weeks in St. Vincent. We had been having a discussion about love, life, and the universal pursuit of happiness. I listened as she shared her stories of raising a family in Chateaubelair, her feelings about how Vincentian culture has evolved, and warnings about getting caught up in the local “comess,” or rumor mill. “If a lady nah know who de fadda of she b...

  3. St. Vincent and the Grenadines The Yoga of Letting Go

    A Peace Corps staff member told me last week, "Part of being in the Peace Corps is to feel entirely overcome by a complete loss of control." He couldn't have been more right, and I couldn't have been more blatantly slapped in the face with an internal struggle that had been brewing under the surface for some time now. Upon hearing his words I thought to myself, "Well if I didn't already know before that I'm a type A personality, then I certainly know for sure now." A...

  1. 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!

  2. St. Vincent and the Grenadines Mattafix Camp Courage

    As in many of our countries served, St. Vincent has a very high unemployment rate, causing many teenage boys to turn to negative lifestyles. Camp Courage is a career development camp for boys near high school graduation to give them the resources necessary to make the transition between school and the workforce a little smoother.

The project is in conjunction with the Palmer LTER (Long Term Ecological Research) network; as such, it will be shared as a learning opportunity for students in the U.S.
