THEY ALREADY GOT INVOLVED

  • Dr. Thompson, St. Vincent

    Here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, we are attempting to become a green island, looking at energy, at the way we conserve our environment. I believe Richmond Vale Academy is one of those places where you can get the information and education and certified programs in terms of what you really need to know about helping to save this world, our planet."

  • Diana, Romania

    I am very proud to say I have been part of the greatest team there ever was. First let me welcome you to this piece of heaven we call Richmond in St. Vincent, I'm sure you love it (who wouldn't?!) and I know you will have a blast while learning and working here. I can vouch for the learning experience. I learned to never give up!"

  • Demion, St. Vincent

    Before RVA's public awareness campaign, many Vincentians did not know what permaculture was. Dreams of getting gold in a global treelympics were farfetched and plastic bottles were an environmental menace. Organic food, GMO awareness and so on were not highly extent. Through RVA's intervention with its 2012 -2021 Climate Compliance agenda, SVG is now a different nation with a more positive environmental attitude."

The most convenient transportation is the private taxi – rates are XCD 160.00 from RVA to Kingstown, XCD 220.00 to the airport and XCD 230.00 to town, letting the taxi wait while you do errands and return. Taxis are available any time – RVA has an updated list of available taxi drivers. Varying reliability regarding time, but good track record with airport runs.

The second most convenient is a taxi where you pay for a seat – XCD 10.00 from Chateaubelair or XCD 15.00 from RVA. There are only a few of these leaving from Chateaubelair, but as a team you can book a van to pick you up; here you would agree a special rate.

The third way is the van, filled to the brim and often with very loud music. Here you pay XCD 6.00. There are plenty of vans leaving from early morning until 3pm and going back as well; when going to town it is best to leave early in the morning having organized pick up with the public system.

With the last two options you need to agree with the driver to take you to the driveway of RVA. It is usually possible if you pay double, meaning XCD 10.00 more with the private taxi or XCD 6.00 more with the van.

My time at Richmond Vale Academy has come to an end. When I just arrived I was very proud at myself because I’m not a traveler at all. When I’m at home I rather stay close to the people and animals I love. I saw Stina’s videos on YouTube about two ye...
Seven months and two weeks. Traveling is always a big education and has the power to change you as a person if you let it, at least from what I have experienced. However, staying in a place together with people­ who want to change the world, learn ab...
When I came to RVA, I had no belief and no confidence in myself. Everything I did came with thoughts that said I wasn’t good enough, I’m doing it wrong, I’m not worthy and I can’t do it. I was stuck in a blame- guilt- pain cycle and couldn’t find my ...
