St. Jude's Girls

Residents from St Jude’s Home for Girls in Belmont have not had the easiest or safest lives. Typically, these girls become wards of the State because they are deemed uncontrollable or heinous acts have happened to them.

For one week however, 12 girls from the home got a break from their every-day life in St Jude’s and were treated to an excursion to the lush and exquisitely beautiful Carmel Valley Estate, Moka, Maraval where they got to pick cocoa and carambola, swim in a river and find out how honey is made.

This was part of the NiNa Young Woman’s Leadership Programme, a girls’ mentorship and entrepreneurial workshop for students which focuses on empowering girls organised by Akousa Dardaine Edwards and a group of volunteers.
