Ex-block leader tells how to help youth
A FORMER BLOCK LEADER has put forward several suggestions he thinks can help get the nation’s youth back on track and away from criminal activity.
Winston “Iston Bull” Branch, former block leader from Chapman Lane, The City, said finance was important to make the youth more self-sufficient and able to run their own enterprises.
He listed agriculture as a viable option, pointing out there was a lot of idle land that the youth could be given access to. They also needed access to loans, which would be channelled into money-making ventures where they could work for a salary
These points were made during Branch’s contribution at an emergency meeting at Hilton Barbados yesterday by The Henderson Williams City Development Foundation to discuss crime in The City. (LK)
