CDB funds development programme for male youth in Dominica

14 Jul 16 - The Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) has partnered with the Caribbean Male Action Network (CariMAN) on a pilot project that will focus on sport, music and the personal developmental needs of youth in Dominica, especially young men. CDB has provided a grant of US$49,500 to the project, which launched on July 1, and will benefit seven schools. It aims to empower youth with relevant employable and coping skills, and produce youth ambassadors to act as advocates among their peers -- including those exposed to violence and abuse.
