Support Our Work in the Caribbean

Help Us Promote Caribbean Civil Society Organisations and Causes

There are great examples of how our Caribbean nonprofit partners are helping our people and communities and, protecting the planet but we do not often hear about their good work that they are doing.  Many lack the time and resources to tell their story, successes and impact.  

ApaNa works with civil society and community organisations in the Caribbean to share their stories and raise the voices of people who are leading a movement for transformative change and sustainability.  

We provide a multi-media platform to raise awareness by sharing their good works, perspectives and best practices through pictures, videos and stories that demonstrate their capacity, achievements, successes and impact. 

Our nonprofit partners and media partners count on us to make this happen and we, in turn, are counting on you to support us.   

We are depending on your donation to do it.  There is nothing like it in the Caribbean. 

If you want to sponsor a nonprofit of your choice, please email us and we will get in touch.
