Livity Project

Livity Project

Launched in 2018, the LIVITY project represents a collaboration between the IGDS: NBU, the BCD and ECADE aimed at meaningfully addressing marginalization of persons living with disabilities, LGBTI Caribbean citizens, women, girls and youth in national and regional decision-making processes.

The LIVITY Project is a four-year, seven-country partnership of the Institute for Gender and Development Studies: Nita Barrow Unit (IGDS: NBU) at The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, the Barbados Council for the Disabled (BCD) and the Eastern Caribbean Alliance for Diversity and Equality (ECADE), which is an umbrella Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Intersex civil society organization headquartered in St Lucia. The LIVITY project is funded by the European Union and targets Barbados, Dominica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis and St. Lucia. The objective of this initiative is to meaningfully address marginalisation, discrimination and exclusion of persons with disabilities, LGBTI Caribbean citizens, women, girls, youth and the elderly in national and regional decision-making processes through enhancing CSO capacity and participation.
