THEY ALREADY GOT INVOLVED

  • 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."

  • Tomika, St. Vincent

    When I left RVA I was a completely different person. I learned things that I would have learned in a 5 years program at university or I would not have learned at all. At the RVA I learned about the Garifuna history, farming, history and team work. From the experience I had while at the RVA I will say that sometimes the road gets rocky and the best thing to do is to keep moving on because somewhere ahead you will manage how to walk on the rocks.
