Reaching out, reaching in

The Grenadines Initiative was launched in the spring of 2018 in order to extend the work of the Bequia Mission, renew engagement, and restate the vision that has lead the mission since it was founded in 1970. As such, the Grenadines Initiative is built on the shoulders of the leaders and volunteers that have done vital work under the Bequia Mission banner for more than four decades. Throughout it has been run by a dedicated group of volunteers in Bequia as well as those in Canada and the United States.

It is our goal to continue working hand-in-hand with existing programs, and, at the direction of local leaders, to create new ones. The assistance given to the community continues, such as the school lunch programs, the procurement of medical supplies and equipment, scholarship programs, will continue. We’ll also look to find innovative ways to grow access to education and to grow awareness of issues affecting population health.
