Famous for its production of some of the finest spice and cocoa in the world, Grenada is also characterised by a rich history, a hardworking and educated population, a mostly unspoilt landscape, stability and an indomitable spirit for progress. Like many post-colonial societies, its population comprises a huge diaspora whose members represent all of the major professions and who like their compatriots on the island, harness a range of skills and experiences which whilst helping in the building of their adopted homes, could help in the development of Grenada.
The Grenada Development Network brought together a group of Grenadians in 2013 to discuss ways of assisting in the development of the country. Officially launched on the 29th July 2014, the Network wants to bring together Grenadians in the diaspora to help Grenada realise its development goals. The Network is non-party political and open to anyone who believe they can make a difference.
In addition to supporting Grenada, the Network will also act to bring Grenadians in the Diaspora together and promote and support initiatives and businesses of members, through its web site and other publications, so that whilst Grenada grows, the Network’s members grow and are better enabled to contribute to Grenada.
The Network seeks to create, manage and support projects which further:
- Agricultural development and food sustainability
- Arts, culture and heritage
- Education and training
- Employment and enterprise
- Gender and youth related services
- Health care and well being
- Protection of the environment
- Sports and recreational development
- Tourism and the promotion of Grenada
