Lay Counselor Training Program

$3,175 of $37,000 goal

Raised by 93 people in 5 months
The Caribbean Voice Inc is a New York registered NGO that is engaged in anti-violence activism in general with a special focus on suicide prevention and anti-abuse with a major focus on Guyana. In our efforts to be able to address suicide and abuse in Guyana, we have identified the lay counselor program that trains gatekeepers to become proactive eyes and ears in communities who will be able to act to prevent suicide and address abuse. To this end Seva International, an NGO out of India, has provided us with a trainer for the lay counselor program for a period of one year. We are not paying for the services of that trainer but we do need to cover the person's living expenses plus costs associated with the various training programs she will be conducting, for the duration of her stay, a total cost of $31,900. We have factored in the fees that have to be paid to Gofundme in the total we need to raise. We need these funds as soon as possible so we can implement the program as Guyana has one of the highest suicide rate in the world and abuse stalks the social landscape as an everyday, suffusing, almost normal activity. My name is Annan Boodram and I'm a founder and current president of The Caribbean Voice.

The funds raised for the lay counselor training program will also be used to simultaneously run a national anti-domestic violence campaign and a national house to house campaign. So thank you everyone for supporting us and please do help us by persuading others to support as well as sharing and promoting the link.

Hello everyone thank you very much for your support so far. In 23 days we have raised $1550 but more importantly, at the time of this update, 1246 persons have visited this page. If each visitor leaves just $5.00 we can reach our goal in no time. And just about everyone can give $5 without almost no sacrifice except perhaps giving up a few beers or a snack and you would have helped to bring to Guyana, a program that will make a significant dent in suicide and abuse. Thank you very much and God bless.
