CARICOM MINI GRANTS PROGRAM OFFERS VITAL HELP TO PROJECT WORKERS
February 22, 2006

Persons involved in the CARICOM Mini Grant Programme for HIV/AIDS, are now better prepared to execute their projects.

A five-member delegation from the federation participated in two critical workshops designed to reduce the scope of HIV/AIDS in the region.

The February 14 to 18 workshops were held in St. Lucia.

The first, a one-day messaging session on stigma and discrimination, while the February 15 to 18 workshop, dealt with methods of monitoring and evaluating projects.

The second course targeted stakeholders of the CARICOM Youth Ambassador administered Mini-Grant Programme, which challenges youth groups to develop projects to reduce the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS in their community.

The delegation was headed by CARICOM Youth Ambassador Pierre Liburd and included members from the Technical Working Group (the Mini-Grant implementing body) and representatives from groups submitting proposals for the Mini-Grant.

Participants were divided into three groups which developed an advertisement for television, radio and newspaper.

The final products are to be used as part of a regional campaign to reduce stigma and discrimination associated with persons living with HIV/AIDS.
