Author and former T&T
Guardian Sunday editor Dr Kris
Rampersad says special focus
should be give to small island
states by the United Nations Edu-
cational, Scientific and Cultural
Rampersad, who represented
T&T at the Unesco Executive
Board during its 196th session in
Paris, said because of the chal-
lenges of small states, countries
like T&T required special focus
within Unesco programmes and
She suggested ways of "deep-
ening synergies in the areas of sci-
ence, education, cultural heritage
conservation and advancing the
creative industries, and use of
information and communications
to achieve greater efficiency, effec-
tiveness and cost savings."
Rampersad also said there was
a need to ensure balanced and
equitable programme focus and
allocations through the debates
on Unesco s role in the UN post-
2015 education agenda.
She also called for "Unesco s
alignment with the Global Geo
Parks initiative, protection of jour-
nalists, the centralisation of culture
in development, and a deeper role
of Unesco Institute of Statistics
in matters related to SIDs."
Rampersad has also advocated
the rights to learning without fear,
making classrooms safe zones,
facilitation of technical and voca-
tional education in the digital age,
helping the disabled with ICT and
developing global citizenship.
Scores of young men between the
of private and state-run children s
homes now have a place to help them
navigate seamlessly into independent
living with the establishment of a
$14 million Ste Madeleine Male
On August 25, the home, the first
of its kind in the country, was opened
by Minister of Gender Youth and
Child Development Clifton De Coteau.
Under the current legislature, chil-
dren residing in these homes are
expected to leave at the age of 18,
regardless of their degree of readiness
for independent living.
"Many of these young people have
no place of abode or support after
being released from the community
residences. Residents of the home
would benefit from two years of sup-
portive services to assist them in their
transition into independent living,"
De Coteau said.
Within state-run children s homes
the Government cares for 217 children.
There are approximately 600 boys
and girls who reside in homes man-
aged by non-governmental agencies.
"If these transitioning young adults
are not provided with the additional
skills needed to fully assimilate into
life outside the home, they can easily
become marginalised by society," De
