H.O.P.E. Nevis, CFB College Receive OAS Grants

Dec. 15 — The Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College in St. Kitts and H.O.P.E. Nevis Inc have been awarded OAS grants for their sustainable communities development projects.

The two were among 14 recipients of grants of up to $US 50,000 under the Sustainable Communities in Central America and the Caribbean Project, funded by the U.S. Permanent Mission to the OAS, and implemented by the Department of Sustainable Development of the organization.

HOPE Nevis Inc. is a community-based organization made up of young people dedicated to their country’s development in academics, sports, health, culture, youth volunteerism inter alia.

The group’s project came under the Resilience to Natural Hazards category. It was awarded $50,000 for its initiative to build community resilience to drought, flooding and other natural hazards in one community in each of Nevis’ five parishes by “implementing sustainable preventative practices to safeguard the communities from hazards and equip the local population with the knowledge and technical skills to prepare, respond to and minimize the fallouts from natural and human induced hazards”.

The CFBC College is St. Kitts-Nevis’ only tertiary institution and provides locals and nationals of other countries with the opportunity to prepare for higher education. Its Sustainable Transport Solutions project will seek to introduce Sustainable Transportation for St. Kitts-Nevis with the use of facilities for non-motorized modes in Basseterre; develop a database for transportation statistics to inform policy and forecast needs to avoid potentially costly mitigation measures; formulate a Transportation Plan as an element of the General Plan Framework or Master Plan for the country and implementation framework for re-distribution of mode share, with emphasis on reducing traffic congestion, pollution, and cost to commuters.

The CFBC also received a grant of $50,000. Not all of the 14 projects awarded grants received the maximum amount.
