Lisa Jarvis, Kim William, and Sue Wilfred – Irie Kids Inc. Basic Pet Care Program

Date grant awarded: October 14, 2019

Irie Kids, Inc. founder Lisa Jarvis is bringing the Basic Pet Care Program to the island of Saint Lucia. The program brings together local youth, shelter workers, educators ,and volunteers in an effort to exchange information about how animals are viewed and what role we all can play as ambassadors for animals. Basic needs of animals will be explored through games, crafts, a trip to the shelter, and other hands-on learning activities.

The Pollination Project’s grant award allows this program to be offered free of charge to elementary school age children living in rural communities.
