Recognising the ever-increasing role of technology in communication, the FDCC has embraced the internet and social media as strong channels through which our various publics can be engaged.

The FDCC is the first indigenous private foundation devoted to promoting early childhood development throughout the region.

A release from the organization said, “Our mission is to significantly increase the number of disadvantaged children who acquire the knowledge and skills to prepare them for entry into primary school and lifelong learning by accessing quality early childhood development services.”

The website was revealed for the first time at the Family Literacy and Learning Symposium being held in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia on October 13 and 14. The launch proved to be an exciting experience for both those present at the Symposium, as well as those who participated online through Facebook and Twitter. The FDCC will be embarking on a massive online marketing campaign through email, Facebook and Twitter, in order to drive more online users to the website.

FDCC stakeholders, special invited guests, the media and attendees at the symposium were treated to a live talk/click through and exposed to the various features of the innovative website.

The FDCC’s website provides up to the minute information on the Foundation’s initiatives and activities, testimonials from those who have benefited most from our programmes, useful resources for parents and children as well as research and publications that support our work.

The colorful interface and simple design will keep visitors coming back and undoubtedly referring others.

“Visitors to our site will also have the opportunity to sign up for membership in the FDCC and very importantly, to donate to the FDCC so our work throughout the region can continue to touch and transform lives,” the release said.
