According to a press release, the group recently embarked on an “Open Day” event to formally introduce the organization to the public, and showcase the work it has already undertaken.
Some of the RBP’s programmes include arts and crafts, yoga, counseling for both male and female adults and children and sewing and dance.
The RBP said it intends to add music and theatre, Brazilian martial arts and capoeira to its list of programmes, according to the release.
The group was founded in 2011 “with the purpose of creating opportunities and providing support to rural villages in Saint Lucia”.
It describes itself as a “wave of change” which has only been made possible through a cadre of local and international volunteers, as well as donations and sponsorship.
The group said that “without the goodwill and generosity of the wider public, it would not be able to continue the good work which is currently being done in the community.”
The RBP’s “Open Day” was hosted on Saturday 20 July 2013. Another such event is scheduled for December 2013.
