Speaking at an SLP press conference today, the Representative for Soufriere and Minister for Social Transformation, Hon.


Happy Father's Day

Fathers are the cornerstone of a society; they are critical agents in the nurturing and socialization of our youth. They provide wisdom, guidance, correction and protection as they cautiously develop their offspring from birth to adulthood.

Although Small Island Developing States like St. Lucia are plagued with a large absenteeism rate of responsible fathers, there are many who have assumed the role like true champions.
Today we recognize fathers. We celebrate their hard work; diligence and commitment in assisting their young develop holistically amidst all the negative elements prevailing in today’s world. We especially salute the fathers who have willingly accepted the dual parent role consistent in motherless households and have become models of excellence.

On behalf of our Political Leader and Prime Minister, the Hon. Dr. Kenny Anthony, the national executive and members of the Saint Lucia Labour Party, we wish all fathers a blessed and rewarding day.
