The Ministry of National in collaboration with UNICEF project launched the Family Support programme on Monday 27th September 2021. This follows on the heels of the development of the Family Support Grant and Card payments for 500 beneficiaries plus the Family Life Education Programme to support 1000 participants (which are the 500 on Family Support Grant and 500 displaced families from the Red Zone).
The programme started in the districts following a training of trainers was conducted by Mrs. Benjamin, and the programme continues for the duration of 3 months in the identified districts. However due to the new covid protocols that allows only 10 persons indoors at a time only 50% of the Family Life Education programme beneficiaries can be accommodated within 3 months since the original plan followed the previous covid protocols of 20 participants indoors at a time.
The venues are the Georgetown Evangelical Church; Wesleyan Holiness Church; Barrouallie Evangelical Church; Layou Miracle Church; Greig Seventh Day Adventist Church; North Union Gospel Assembly; Stubbs Gospel Hall; Biabou Methodist; Evesham Seventh Day Adventist Church; Mespotamia Gospel Hall; Richland Park Seventh Day Adventist Church; Mespotamia Roman Catholic Church; Boy Scout Headquarters; Church of God of Prophesy Colonaire.
