We are very excited to be able to share the news that the BVI branch of Hedge Funds Care is now in a position to be able to work with and fund BVI projects aimed at preventing and treating child abuse on our islands.
Our plans to reach out to the community were delayed when we were rudely interrupted by the visits of hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017. But after taking a moment to dust ourselves off, Help For Children BVI this week went public with a call for proposals from charities, not-for-profits and child-serving agencies in the British Virgin Islands. The call for funding proposals seeks to support programs and initiatives related to child protection, safe–guarding, well-being and child abuse prevention and treatment as the community continues to recover and rebuild from last year’s hurricanes.
I am very grateful to fellow blogger Natalie Bell and the fabulous team at Hedge Funds Care without whom we would not have reached this point. Now we look forward to seeing the vision manifest into something meaningful for BVI children!
