Our Programs & Projects

Community


Sickkids caribbean

The goal of the programme is to provide training and resources to better diagnose and treat children with cancer and serious blood disorders across the Caribbean. The Sandals Foundation has been instrumental in funding three main initiatives:

•   Nurse training

•   Creating a telemedicine room in Saint Lucia so local medical experts can present patient cases to SickKids for advice as well as to help link doctors in neighbouring Caribbean islands

•   Funding the training of a paediatric oncologist, Dr. Chantelle Browne, who will return to her home country of Barbados after completing a two-year fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and become the second paediatric ongologist in the Eastern Caribbean.
 

Environment


Trees that feed

All species of sea turtle are endangered and Sandals Foundation conservation efforts help protect their populations.

Sandals Foundation partnered with the Antigua Sea Turtle Monitoring programme to provide funding for Sea Turtle Monitoring and conservation in Antigua.

Over three years, Antigua sea turtle has monitored over 300 nests of different species of turtles across Antigua.

Education


St. Lawrence primary school library

In a bid to support and enhance education at St. Lawrence Primary School, Sandals Foundation funded the refurbishment of the school’s library.
In additional to the refurbishment the Foundation donated and installed computers for the benefit of the staff and student population as well as a mural for enhanced beautification of the learning space.
