Beauty and Compassion: A Young St Lucian Woman Making A Difference For Women in Rural St Lucia
It takes a lot of effort and commitment to decide to build a non-profit organization without letting ego get into the way-Keithlin Caroo, a St Lucian born decided to put people first.
In 2016, she decided that she had to do something to better the lives of rural St Lucian women. That was the birth of Helen’s Daughters. Its inception, a winning proposal submitted to UN Women’s Empower Women Champions for Change Program.
Caroo knew that an organization was needed to empower St Lucian women by providing them with the right resources and support to venture in the male-dominated field of farming.
Today she and her team cater to women in rural St Lucia who are engaged in agriculture, fisheries, trades and crafts, food processing and market vending. The organization conducts workshops that teaches entrepreneurship and the intricacy of doing starting a business in St Lucia.
