Our Projects 2020-21
Hello and welcome to our exciting events for November 2020 - December 2021
With the goal to help any parent who calls on us for assistance we pray that God will Bless us and allow us to fulfill our wishes as we try to work with parents to brighten the lives of as many children as possible.
Barbados Children Directory networks with various professionals and authorities to get the best advice and help for children and we will continue this in 2019.
We collect used clothing, toys and books in our 'Pass It On Project' and through this, we have been able to give children good used items, books and useful toys....and sometimes we get brand new items for the children. You are therefore invited to donate good used items of clothing, books and toys to give to children.
This year we are adding used school uniforms to our list of items needed as some uniforms we had were well accepted last summer. So please donate and help to ease the burdens of some parents to provide for children.
We have outlined our projects for 2019 and we invite you to join us to bring smiles to the faces of children who deserve to smile more than they are able to do.
We are beginning a You Tube Video Channel where we will discuss various topics regarding children. Coming soon!
Our videos will engage parents and professionals from various disciplines in a new discussion bi weekly.
Our 'Little Library' project will seek to set up little libraries aimed at getting children to read, do puzzles and educational fun stuff.
The 'little libraries' will start off in two communities, and will grow according to the volunteers to help manage them.
Children will get to borrow books and will be asked to write a short 'review' on each book that they read.
The young readers will be rewarded during the year and will receive Christmas gifts for their book reviews.
May is Child Month in Barbados
Our focus is going to be on Child Abuse and in particular:
Sexual Abuse of Children
Mental Health in Children
Isolation, Abandonment and Neglect
We are offering Blue Pin Ribbons as a sign of awareness of child abuse. We are hoping that everyone will wear a blue ribbon to show support for your concern about child abuse.
There will also be seminars on our areas of focus to which parents and the general public will be invited.
The details on the seminars and activities for our child month awareness will be announced at the end of March.
Saturday June 01 is Global Day of Parents and on that day we are organising a seminar on: Ço-parenting. All will be invited to attend.
June 16th is Father's Day and we will be featuring some dads on our Video that week. Children will be invited to send in Father's Day messages for their dads to be posted on our face book page.
During July and August when children are on holiday, the children reading in Little Libraries who are not going to summer camp will get the opportunity to enjoy tours.
These tours will be organised with camps who we will ask to include our little library children.
August 10 is World Humanitarian Day
Child Rights are Human Rights and we will be bringing awareness to Child Rights on that day.
20 November is Universal Day of the Child
This day is recognised globally to celebrate children and to bring awareness to the plight of children around the world.
We will be using our You Tube Channel to interview children and to listen to what they are saying.
October is Education Month in Barbados
Using our You Tube Channel, we are going to speak on the concerns of parents when it comes to education and what parents should be doing to help their children achieve.
Detailed plans for education month will be announced at a later date.
The month of December is all about love and giving and children look forward to gifts, new clothes and special Christmas treats.
Christmas 2019 we are going to work with the children in our Little Libraries and award them with gifts for their efforts to read and for their book reviews.
We are also going to ensure that they have new clothes and food on their tables at Christmas.
We would appreciate all assistance that we can get to make this possible for the children. More details will follow after we settle with the 'Little Libraries' and have more information on the children.
