“Empowering Caribbean Excellence”

“Reaching the global community, guided by the cultural spirit of the Caribbean, to educate, enrich, and promote excellence.”

CaribSplash Youth Development

One of our goals is to provide educational materials (eg. books to libraries of impoverished schools) and sporting equipment (eg. cricket and soccer) to children in need. We acknowledge the importance of nutrition in today’s youth and have created a school feeding program ensuring students can take advantage of the academic and recreational atmosphere created.
