Our Supported Projects
Sandals Foundation supports projects and programmes that lend to the development of local communities, education in local schools and the environment within Barbados.
Our Programs & Projects
The goal of the programme is to provide training and resources to better diagnose and treat children with cancer and serious blood disorders across the Caribbean. The Sandals Foundation has been instrumental in funding three main initiatives:
• Nurse training
• Creating a telemedicine room in Saint Lucia so local medical experts can present patient cases to SickKids for advice as well as to help link doctors in neighbouring Caribbean islands
• Funding the training of a paediatric oncologist, Dr. Chantelle Browne, who will return to her home country of Barbados after completing a two-year fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and become the second paediatric ongologist in the Eastern Caribbean.
game changer football
The Game Changer programme has impacted 53 children between the ages of 4-16 years through the Football component of the programme in Barbados. The camp also enhanced the capabilities of local coaches through the facilitation of training and sharing best pratices.
As a part of the Game Changer programme, the Sandals Foundation has also funded the erection of safety fencing for the community sports and play area in St. Lawrence Gap, Barbados.
The Dover Playing field serves as a safe space for social engagement among the community’s youth.
