Barbuda Community Grants Update

We are now more than halfway through the grantperiod for the Barbuda Community Grants! Amazing work is underway and a few of the projects have already been completed. The International Community Foundation will be visiting Barbuda in February to learn first hand about the progress. We are also interested in finding out more about ongoing challeges and additional opportunities to support Barbudans. Stay tuned for more detailed updates on the below community projects coming soon! 

BarbudanGO Water Harvesting Initiative (20k). Provides 400-gallon water tanks, spouting systems, and fittings to Barbudan households to increase their access to potable water.          

BE Foundation's Organic Farming Project (20k). Introduces organic farming principles and food waste management systems to youth alongside traditional produce farmers. Barbudans will "house" community gardens in their homes using a research-based, community-led framework designed by students.

Rebuild Barbuda - Roof Repair for the Elderly (20k). Repairs roofs of the most vulnerable residents in Barbuda, as many elders have been displaced as a result of Hurricane Irma.
