Construction of the St. Cyr Community Resource Centre in the Kalinago Territory is nearing completion.

Parliamentary Representative for the Salybia Constituency and Minister for Kalinago Affairs Honourable Casius Darroux has stated that work on the project is about 95 percent complete. Minister Darroux expects the building to have multiple functions when completed.

“When it is fully completed by this month-end, as I said, the early childhood education will be a major aspect of that building, there will be space for Community Postal Agency, an area for cultural performances and other community activities. So it is going to be a landmark in the Kalinago Territory where persons can commune and have a moment in time,” Minister Darroux stated.

The St. Cyr Community Resource Centre is one of six components under the Kalinago Territory Capacity Building project. The project is at a cost of one million, four hundred and fifty-five thousand, five hundred and seventy-five dollars and thirty-nine cents ($1,455,575.39).

    It is a modern-day era building. It looks beautiful. When it is complete, hope you make good use of it, this God-given opportunity. It should be one of your pride and joys. When opened and operable, take good care of your building.
    If this is not progress for Dominica and the Kalinago people, what else is progress?
    The Caribs, now referred to as Kalinagos have come a long way. You are now recognized as a people. I love the saying, “It is never too late.” You are not left behind and are also experiencing better times, with more to come. You have reasons to be proud and to celebrate this milestone.
    Thank your government.
    Keep in mind you are people too and Dominica is your country, to also build up.
    For your children, ensure through studies they are educated that they learn as much as they could and one day, they will be upfront in Dominica, holding some important positions and their rightful place as Dominicans.
    God bless every one of you.

    For once the architects discovered a shape besides a square. A great move for our indigenous people.

      Not only beautiful, but appears to be able to stand its own against hurricanes.
