Our official Charity for this year is Reachwithin. Donations can be made to them directly or on active.com when registering.
Reachwithin is a small NGO in Grenada who believe that children are best served when they are nurtured in loving and supportive environments. Their aim is to help vulnerable children in Grenada develop healthy social and emotional life skills while providing positive behaviour techniques to their caregivers.
They achieve this through their two-pronged model, a Youth Yoga and Life Skills programme which includes Yoga, Summer Art workshops and drumming classes.And a Caregiver Education Programme which incorporates Yoga,mini-retreats and training for carers in Conscious Discipline, a programme teaching carers to think differently about how discipline should be administered to children.
If you would like to know more about Reachwithin programmes or would like to donate, please visit reachwithin.org where you can also sign up for their annual fundraisers which includes a walkathon, a marathon in both Grenada and New York, a yoga day and a child and caregiver conference to be held in the summer at St George's University.
