This Young Man From St Lucia Turned A Problem Into A Business Opportunity

In 2014, Johanan Dujon a young man from St Lucia, saw an opportunity and founded his company Algas Organics.

To many it was a problem, giant masses of brown Sargassum was washing up on beaches across the Caribbean, leaving mounds of smelly seaweed.

Dujon idea was to convert Sargassum into a biofertiliser through an environmentally friendly process. But initially he faced many challenges. First he had to test if his idea could actually work. Then he had to move from a test to production and finally making this a business.

The video below highlights some of the steps that this young St Lucia took to finally start his company.

Why Write Creole (Kwéyòl)?
thevoiceslu.com

THE mere fact that we have to ask the question, ‘why write Creole?’ is indicative of a cancerous underlying negative attitude towards our indigenous tongue. No one feels the need to ask ‘why write French?’ or ‘why write English?’ But, for Creole speaking peoples, the question reflects that, for historical reasons, our Creole language has suffered from the inflationary effects of never having had the status of being perceived as a valid language. It has been outcast, referred to as bad, or as a bastardization of the French language, not a ‘proper’ language.

THE NUTRITIVE VALUE OF OUR CREOLE FOOD – PT.1
by Agatha Modeste http://thevoiceslu.com/

Over thirty years ago, a retired nurse made the interesting comment that in the past there were hardly cases of malnutrition among children. She posited that malnutrition is a product of modern day eating style. As we celebrate Creole Heritage Month, let us revisit that comment and explore the nutritional value of our Creole food or the food that our parents, fore­parents and some of us consumed long ago or an tan lontan, and which many of us still consume today.

It’s been a long journey, Whitney Henry, Class of 2016, says. Henry’s lilting accent gives away her home country of St. Lucia, which she left at age 19 to pursue a career in science. After winning an academic scholarship to a small liberal arts college in northern Louisiana, she volunteered for experimental training in one of two research labs, interning at other universities during undergraduate summers.

Sante-Lucie a célébré lundi l'anniversaire de son indépendance. A cette occasion, une version en créole de l'hymne national a été chantée pour la première fois.

Sent-Lisi

   A la veille de la commémoration du 37è anniversaire de son  indépendance le 22 février 2016, l'île de Saint-Lucie, par le biais de son gouvernement a officialisé la version en créole de l'hymne national (qui est en anglais et a été écrit par Fr Charles Besse) sous le titre Chanson Nasyonnal Sent-Lisi. Depuis plus de cinq ans, divers créolistes et responsables culturels, tels qu'Lindy-Ann Alexander et le pasteur Wusltan Charles travaillaient sur ce projet qui a finalement abouti le même jour que l'UNESCO a décrété "Journée Internationale de la langue maternelle". Cette date est totalement ignorée des autorités politiques martiniquaises, de quelque bord qu'elles soient, puisque le français est devenu la langue maternelle des Martiniquais, chose après tout normale puisque les ancêtres de ces derniers sont les Gaulois.
