Manifesto

Paying credence to the lack of information available to the Grenadian public on matters of national social interest.

Having regard to the pervasive culture of apathy especially among youth.

Recognizing the precarious position of the public by virtue of such ignorance and apathy.

Realizing that these conditions can be remedied adequately by provision of information and expressive fora.

Believing that the Grenadian people already have knowledge of circumstances that do affect them adversely and potentially will, as well as the aspiration for an improved holistic quality of life and that given the opportunity and equipment the Grenadian public can and will effect the  necessary societal changes.

Believing firmly in the power of the collective.

Realizing the need to be critical of mentalities, cultures, standards and modalities that adversely affect people in our communities.

We establish Groundation Grenada.

    Love this! Interesting to note that the level of ignorance and apathy of which you speak is present not only in Grenada but here in Toronto, Canada across the border. Perhaps we can have some further discussions on this sometime in the future!

      Oh absolutely! We think one of the things that hinders growth is the idea that “that’s how Grenadian are”, in relation to a number of behaviors viewed as negative. We’ve heard it used broadly too (i.e. Caribbean people, Black People, or just plain people.) The trap of that sentiment is that it positions whatever the behavior is as fixed, inherent even biological, which of course is a terribly limiting perspective. Great point.
