In 2012 Labour introduced a revolutionary pilot programme to deliver crucial, life changing skills to vulnerable members of the Federation. The MEND programme designed to Mend, Empower, Nurture and Direct, elevated the focus on public assistance in St. Kitts & Nevis from one of primarily material support to one that also equipped vulnerable members of society with the skills needed to cope with the various demands of life. Labour now stands ready to restore and build on this highly successful social programme which was halted by the current Administration. The new NextGen SKN Labour Movement will develop a team of properly trained government employees to implement a fully restored MEND programme. We will undertake a review of the Federation’s demographic profile to ensure that a path to empowerment is available not only to the vulnerable, but to the near vulnerable as well.
