Child Resiliency Programme
The Child Resiliency Programme (CRP) is an initiative that the VM Foundation supports through the Violence Prevention Alliance. Implemented in October 2020, the programme targets youth and children that are at risk of violence, health and social traumas.
The programme provides intervention in the form of holistic development of the child displaying at-risk behaviour by offering academic support, life skills training, parenting and family support, nutrition support among many other services.
The developmental process for each CRP across the island engages approximately 60 Grade-5 children who are referred from six schools. Each CRP operates out of a school, church or community centre as an after-school programme.
