The Square will come alive with speeches by prominent persons, presentation of drama, song, dance, poems, testimonies, as well as live performances by our very own artists who has over the years brought us songs highlighting concerns for our deteriorating society.
LEARN TO SAY NO will provide an avenue for partnership with community experts such as persons with skills and interest in many extracurricular fields such as drama, music, arts and crafts etc. through which they can contribute positively to the development of Children and Youth. Additionally, it will create an avenue to showcase the positive engagements of youth thereby attracting deserved exposure, incentives and rewards.
The primary goal of LEARN TO SAY NO ST.LUCIA is to enable young people to be positively engaged in activities that are rewarding and fulfilling. It is intended to challenge their positive energies into investments and preserve them from indulging in self destructing activities which are ever so prevalent in our society.
The project will redirect their indulgence into such areas as drama, dance, sports, music, and arts and crafts as the first step in saying NO to the many destructive ills in our society such as:
• ABUSE (SEXUAL, PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL…)
• CRIME, VIOLENCE, BULLYING
• ADDICTION (DRUGS AND ALCOHOL)
• PEER PRESSURE
LEARN TO SAY NO will provide a cadre of young people who will be equipped with integrity, love for fellowmen, focused, zealous about life and country. They will become a generation of better mothers, fathers, workers, brothers, sisters, obedient and respectful to those in authority. Well- equipped leaders for the upcoming generation. A PEOPLE WE CAN COUNT ON!
Above all this project will save lives, ensure more peaceful homes and Streets, Schools and Communities
Therefore we are asking everyone to come out to support the fight against so many social issues that are affecting our young people in St. Lucia.
