A new child safeguarding and public education programme, where UK sports personalities and graduates will work closely with Eastern Caribbean coaches and youth mentors was officially launched on Wednesday by new British Resident Commissioner Mrs. Annie McGee.
The Female Sports Diplomacy and Child Safeguarding (FemDip) programme will work in St. Lucia and neighbouring St. Vincent and Grenada on child safeguarding issues and will encourage more young women to participate in physical activity. ...
The programme’s two key objectives are focusing on child centred rights development and in the process improving child safeguarding practices and public diplomacy, where an advocacy campaign will educate on the need for safe spaces to play and include interventions from well-known UK sports personalities in a bid to strengthen links between the UK, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Grenada.
