Monday, January 24, 2005 - The National Community Foundation (NCF), on Wednesday, January 26th will stage a national consultation at the National Insurance Corporation’s conference room. The half day activity will target some 100 persons, representing organizations and groups working with older persons and youth at risk.

The Executive Director of the National Community Foundation (NCF) Jancinta Lee believes that these groups and organizations could benefit from the Foundation, if given the opportunity to get to know more about its operations. “What will happen on the day is that we will be giving them information about the NCF, the two committees at the NCF, the Youth at Risk, and the Older Persons committees. There is also a presentation by Ezra Jn. Baptist, the Deputy PS in the Ministry of Health, and he will be looking at the social landscape, the status of youth versus older persons in St. Lucia. There will also be time for persons to talk about best practices, and what it is that they have been doing in their organizations that have been very successful”, said Ms. Lee.

At this week’s consultation the NCF will provide information on proposed projects and the funding for those projects.

The three-year old National Community Foundation is a philanthropic, non-profit organization, which has rendered significant financial assistance to individuals, groups, and organizations on the island.

The Foundation focuses on seven areas which include Youth at Risk, Older Persons, Disadvantaged Children, Health Care, Homeless Persons, Pensioners and Persons with Disabilities.
