As the Sky’s the Limit Campaign – a joint effort between the Foundation for the Development of Caribbean Children (FDCC) and LIAT – continues raising funds and early childhood development awareness across Caribbean skies, one group has pledged their support to the cause.

Members of the Interact Club of the Antigua State College recently donated a cheque totalling $1,653.46 EC to the FDCC. Members of the Club, Christa-Joy Burton and Ki-jana Bowers presented the cheque on the Club's behalf. Ms. Burton noted that "children are our future and we are proud to help them achieve their goals." Mrs. Lucette James, FDCC Board Member, was on hand to receive the donation and remarked: "we are warmly appreciative of your efforts...we hope the work of the FDCC will result in opportunities for our region's young people."

Members of the diaspora community in Canada also donated to the FDCC’s work. The cheque for CA $1,160.00 was hand-delivered by Mrs. Monica Woodley, FDCC Ambassador in Canada after a brief holiday in St. Vincent. The donations were received from Mrs. Frances Phipps and Mrs. Jodi Thomas. Mrs. Phipps, a Canadian national, visited St. Vincent and the Grenadines a few times and fell in love with the islands. Her love for the Caribbean prompted her interest to give back to the children of this region. Mrs. Thomas a Vincentian- Canadian, celebrated her three year old son’s birthday with a family fundraiser in aid of FDCC’s work with young children in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Monica Woodley delivers cheque to FDCC; the Foundation salutes each of its donors no matter the size of the donation and will continue to engage the support of the Caribbean diaspora communities across the world in giving Caribbean Children the foundation they deserve.

Launched in January 2012, the FDCC is the first indigenous non-profit foundation in the Caribbean dedicated to advancing the cause of and providing avenues for early childhood development for poor, vulnerable or at-risk families. It builds on a 10-year platform of success created by the Caribbean Child Support Initiative, a programme that was introduced in 2002, dedicated to mainstream effective and high quality early childhood development and parenting support practices. FDCC aims to give children equal opportunities to reach their full potential.
