Why is this urgent?
Recently two leaders of the Kalinago people and their seven children joined the Church. Another Church member just moved to the Kalinago area. Unfortunately, the closest branch is a one-hour drive away in Roseau. There is no public transportation, and it is very difficult for them to stay active. A couple is needed to makeup a group of members that can combine for transportation for these members and support for the missionaries until there are a few more members so the Church could form a “Group” in the Kalinago area. There is also a pressing need for humanitarian assistance to the Kalinago community in general as described below.
Where is this project?
The English-speaking country of Dominica is an eastern Caribbean island between Guadeloupe and Martinique. The Kalinago Territories is a designated “homeland’ on the eastern side of the island where about 3,000 of the descendants of the Carib people live. The Caribs were the indigenous people that greeted Christopher Columbus when he sailed to the new world and now go by their native name, Kalinago.
How would I help?
We will match your experience and previous callings with the many needs of the Kalinago Territories including educational tutoring, agricultural training, teaching skills of working remotely, 12 Step Program, marriage course and self-reliance skills like gardening, personal finance, fitness, and health.
