Waitukubuli National Trail Project partners with WCMF 2010

Waitukubuli National Trail Project Director Eddie Henry

The Waitukubuli National Trail Project (WNTP) officials will piggyback on this year’s World Creole Music Festival, showcasing its product in a booth at the entrance of the Windsor Park Stadium.

Project Director Eddie Henry says the project seems more renowned to foreigners than locals and with that came the idea of partnering with the Dominica Festival Committee (DFC) to improve on the local and by extension regional promotion of the trail, which is nearing completion.

“We are very happy to have the opportunity to partner this year. We want to highlight the achievement of the project and provide you with a glimpse of the vision of what it should be, as we create opportunities and empower communities. Come hike the Nature Isle. Discover the curves, the crevices, the nature of Dominica and Waitukubuli and you too will receive your curves and beautiful bodies to tell the tail,” Henry said.

He added that while the World Creole Music Festival offers three nights of pulsating rhythms, the Waitukubuli National Trail boasts 14 days of, at least, of breathtaking beauty and a beautiful sense of nature at its best.

Vice Chairman of the DFC Sobers Esprit introduced the WNTP team as a partner of the mega event at the DFC’s last press briefing.

The WNTP project director encourages all of Dominicans to discover nature for heritage development.

“Our country will achieve economic development through our music, culture, communities and our hiking,” he said.

Although the trail has not achieved a 100 percent state of completeness, the project director assures that “All segments of trail are cleared and the trail is hike-able”.

The Waitukubuli National Trail was constructed in 14 segments from the north to south of the entire island and was implemented by the Government of Dominica with funding from the European Union, at a cost of approximately EC$14 million.

The purpose of the project is to promote Dominica’s tourism, nature, heritage and culture through the development of a national trail across the island.

    This is a most welcome initiative. Lets encourage Dominicans of all ages to learn to appreciate the beauty and diversity of our nature Island, schools across country should begin organising waitukubuli field trips as part of the geography course, this will in turn help foster a much a greater sense of pride in in the youths of DA today. lets not leave it only to foreign visitors enjoy..
