A people who cannot feed themselves is as poor as any one can imagine. It is our belief that St. Eustatius is a disaster away from starvation. It was partly this thinking that prompted the New Challenges Foundation to venture into this project.
The New Challenges Foundation is always looking for ways in which it can help in the development of the youth of St. Eustatius. A Youth Employment Opportunity Project was written with a number of sectors. Hydroponics is the first of these sectors to receive funding.
