Sincere gratitude

President of the Young Women’s Christian Association, Paige Bryan.

As we look back upon 2012, the YWCA expresses sincere gratitude to our volunteers, staff, members, benefactors/donors and the Government of Barbados for your assistance throughout the year.

Your generosity has enabled us to continue our programmes and initiatives — The Breakfast Club, Reading Club and training of women to move them towards economic empowerment. We could not do it without you.

On a more sombre note, we express concern at the level of violence which is fast becoming a staple of our society and the carnage that is occurring on our roads. We encourage all Barbadians to live the fundamental Biblical principle of love — love for God and love for your neighbour, thereby allowing us to treat others as we would wish to be treated.

Our wish for Barbados is to be a more peaceful and caring society where we go back to being our brother’s keeper.

Women, we urge you to become independent by finding a legitimate source of income to support yourself and family. We encourage our young people to give back to the country by volunteering with an organisation or assisting where there is a need.

Here’s wishing each and every one of you a 2013 filled with joy, peace and all God’s blessings.†††
