The accomplishments of three exceptional visually impaired students were celebrated by the St. Lucia Blind Welfare Association at a graduation ceremony on July 5th. At an event held at the Financial Administration Centre, the graduates were recognized for their hard work and dedication to their course. The ceremony represented the culmination of the SLBWA’s Japanese Massage Traditional Therapy program. This initiative was done in collaboration with Japan International Coopertatiom Agency (JICA).Throughout their training, students were enlightened on various oriental massage techniques including Shiatsu massage. According to SLBWA Executive Director, Anthony Avril, the association hopes that this program will serve as the genesis of a greater initiative to make St. Lucia a hub for blind and visually impaired people who want to learn the skill of massage therapy.”The dream is for us to be able to be properly established to have an institution that provides not only, St. Lucians opportunities but our brothers and sisters, to begin with the Eastern Caribbean and perhaps beyond” Avril said.
