The OECS Commission and USAID, through the Juvenile Justice Reform Project (JJRP), has implemented a capacity-building intervention at the Boys Training Centre (Saint Lucia) in Cinematography.
Dove Productions Limited is the facilitator of the training programme.
Solutions to involve children in conflict with the law is an important path in the rehabilitation, reentry and reintegration process in the community, family, and other social institutions.
Acquiring the necessary life skills and gaining competencies to secure and maintain employment is a critical element of successful reintegration into society.
The JJRP cinematography intervention will engage 12 boys at the Boys Training Centre in various techniques of videography. This is an important step towards the social inclusion of a vulnerable community by way of improving their resilience through skill development.
The project is being implemented in the six OECS Independent Member States: Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, Dominica, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada.
