Charlestown, Nevis
(April 15, 2008)

Over 100 primary school age students on Nevis were admonished to take heed to the lessons which encompassed the value of safety that they would receive and to utilise them to enhance their lives and that of those around them.
 
The advice came from Minister of Youth and Social Transformation in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) Hon. Hensley Daniel on April 14, 2008, at the start of the annual week long Easter Camp organised by the Ministry of Social Affairs at the St. Thomas Primary School. The theme for the activity is “Nurturing strong minds in a safe environment; safety first”.
 
“At the moment the society is changing where people are tending towards violence, crime and fighting and I want you as participants in this programme with a focus on safety first to be able to make that difference. Nobody who comes to this Easter Camp must be involved in a fight in school nobody who comes to Camp must be in a gang. We want you to be good examples and “¦share with all of your friends and all of the other students”¦
 
“As you go through the week bear in mind that all the people who have come to make presentations they have come because they have your interest at heart. They have come because they want to help promote the orderly development of young people and I want you to think very seriously as they say to you they want you, there are over 100 of you to be good examples for the others who were not able to attend,” he said.

Charlestown Nevis

A workshop designed to equip participants with the tools necessary to complete a Business Continuity Plan and improve the resilience of the economy to the impact of disasters took place last Thursday April 3rd, 2008 at the Nevis Disaster Management office at Long Point, Nevis.
 
The workshop was hosted by the Nevis Disaster Management office and sponsored by the Caribbean Open Trade Support (COTS) Program funded by United States Agency for International development (USAID) Barbados based office. The one day training programme was facilitated by Mr. Frank Michael who said that the workshop came under the risk component of the COTS program.
 
“Over the last four years COTS have been working with governments, the private sector, non-government and community based organizations to do four things.  First to enhance private sector growth, second to improve the business and investment climate, third to increase resilience to disasters and four to protect the biodiversity of the sub-region.
 
“The round of workshops has taken place throughout the OECS [Organization of Eastern Caribbean States] with the exception of Dominica.  Nevis will be the last of the round of workshops, and I can assure you that you will perhaps be in a better position because everything that could have gone wrong before, we would have looked at and hoped to improve by the time we got to the last workshop, so in looking at what we are hope to achieve,” he said.
