Our Programs & Projects
The Sandals Foundation Game Changer is an integrated programme that includes sports, recreation and healthy lifestyles for under privileged Caribbean youth. The programme initiated in 2014 as a partnership with NBA Champion Dwyane Wade through his Wade’s World Foundation.
In Limes, Grenada through the Game Changer programme the Foundations opened a basketball court and launched a yearlong afterschool program inclusive of healthy meals and mentorship. This facility was deemed a necessary safe space for youth in and around the community who have traditionally used basketball as a medium of socialization and self-expression. The programme has impacted 150 children, ages 8 yrs. to 13yrs., by providing them opportunities through sports and mentorship.
Sandals Foundation partnered with the Mount Harman Institute on its Dove Conservation Programme to help raise public awareness of the endangered national bird of Grenada, the Grenada Dove.
The project provided indoor and outdoor informational material at the Mt. Hartman Visitor Center. Sandals Foundation also funded the construction of a viewing tower at the Mt. Hartman National Park, island wide billboards at parish boundaries and an education programme targeting primary schools.
Since 2013, Sandals Foundation has partnered with Hands Across the Sea to support children’s literacy, educational development, and the love of reading through a targeted program of book donation and library support.
The program aimed to provide books, create borrowing libraries whilst getting students involved in its use and management and fostering sustainability of an engaging reading space within St. Lucia, Antigua and Grenada.
In just three years of operation the programme has reached 5,601 children and has shipped 45,850 books.
