Along with several other local organisations, the Barbudaful website applied for and has been awarded a grant from the Barbuda Resilience Fund, supported by ICF,
The full list of organisations who received funds, and what they will do with them can be found here Barbuda Project List ICF
The funds have been given to barbudaful to update the website over the next year, after devastating Hurricane Irma made the whole site irrelevant overnight.This will include a new template that brings the site up to date with the ever-changing demands of technology and security. It also includes much needed time to correct broken links, out of date entries and update information. There will be new postcards for all future subscribers to promote their entry. If you are already on the site you will receive the new cards in 2020 – if you are not on the site, you can see how to subscribe here, just send a message.
The website grant was administered by BarbudanNGO, who are an umbrella organisation in Barbuda able to accept funding on behalf of individuals or organisations who are too small to have charitable status. They are happy to help any Barbudan access funding if you have a grant you would like to apply for.
