The Caribbean is not just sun, sea and lovely beaches… It is made up of many developing countries and communities. Children and youth in many Caribbean countries suffer when it comes to sports education, and most of the time, this is the only outlet these children have to express themselves, have fun and develop as individuals.
Sports is a powerful development tool, and can empower and inspire children to live and enjoy life to its fullest. At True Volunteer Foundation, we are determined to make a difference to the lives of many children and youth living in developing Caribbean countries and communities. Our campaign is aimed at providing assistance to designated forums where children and youths between the ages of 8-17 are given a place where they can come together to tackle a range of challenging social issues within their communities through a wide range of sporting and education activities. The programme is expected to help and make a real difference to the lives of thousands of children and youth living in the Caribbean.
How can you help?
Our campaign aims to raise thousands of pounds to change the lives of thousands of children and youths living across the Caribbean. There are a number of ways you can get involved:
TVF will be organising and attending a number of events to promote the campaign and raise funds. You can also help the campaign grow by becoming a Caribbean Children and Youth Campaigner and host your own sponsored event.
In August 2013, we held a big family sports and fun day which was a great success, you can read all about the event by downloading the campaign newsletter on the left.
Organising your own event? Have your own place in an organised challenge or run? Set up an online sponsorship page through TVF’s JustGiving account and raise funds for the Caribbean Campaign.
Donate as little as £5 towards the campaign at anytime and make a real difference.
How your donation could help:
- £15 could cover the cost for one child to attend a programme
- £12 could buy an item of sports equipment to run a programme
- £5 could help towards cones and makers for sports games.
No less than 95 per cent of every pound donated will go directly into various sporting and educational programme’s to help change the lives of children and youth living in the Caribbean. Each donor will receive regular updates on the project and will be able to see what a visible difference they have made.
