GRANTLEY OSBOURNE is on a mission. As the new head of the Men’s Support Educational Association (MESA), he is determined to do what he can to halt the downward slide of men in Barbados.

“There is no turning away. We have to confront the young men and their problems. Each Barbadian must try to arrest the situation which is becoming explosive to the detriment of everyone,” says the 69-year-old retired teacher.

For 37 years, he laboured successfully with children at schools across Barbados – Boscobel Boys, Buxton Boys, Wesley Hall Boys, St John the Baptist, St Silas Senior, retiring as principal at Carrington’s Primary, St Michael – inspiring them to believe in themselves and to achieve when others were less optimistic about their chances.
