OECS Celebrates 40 Years

In this fifth issue of ApaNa Magazine, we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of establishing the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States with messages from the Hon. Roosevelt Skerritt, Prime Minister of the Republic of Dominica and Chairman of the OECS Authority and, from Dr Didacus Jules, the Director-General of the OECS Commission. We also highlight the milestones of the OECS integration initiatives from 1962.  ApaNa features the great work of a mangrove teacher who has, over the past 50 years, developed the Mangrove Education Curriculum that is taught in over 15 countries worldwide and youth who have become Mangrove Rangers fighting to protect mangroves in their country. 

We also cover the new social enterprise incubators in Barbados and St.Lucia and the innovative social stock exchange in Jamaica for social businesses. Our team talks to two award-winning young persons who are helping at-risk youth get on the right path.
