RISE Saint Lucia Inc. in partnership with the humanitarian cruise ship Freewinds,
are taking effective action on crime prevention by adopting the Way to Happiness
Program addressing the youth of St. Lucia to give them a solid path towards a glorious future of fulfilled dreams.

Dr. Cherry and Jonathan St. Rose recently brought the message of The Way Happiness
to Clendon Mason and Sir Ira Simmons Secondary Schools.

Their presentations created a positive impact on the students as both Dr. Cherry and Mr. St. Rose shared their own personal stories of growing up in poverty, touching life of crime and turning it around.

Knowing that these students will soon be making choices about their future RISE St.
Lucia realizes that The Way to Happiness can assist youth in making the right choices
in life.

Dr. Cherry was very happy to be able to supply The Way to Happiness Educator
Kit, containing all the materials necessary to deliver the program, to the Principal, Mrs
Martina Belizaire and the teachers at the Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School.

After the session where The Way to Happiness Program was delivered by Dr. Cherry to
the students of the Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School, one student stated: “The
message resonated with me. This really is my life, you are telling my story.” “This
knowledge is so powerful, thank you, I really appreciated this.”

Dr. Cherry himself was amazed by the immediate impact and response from the kids, at
how they absorbed the information.

To this Dr. Cherry said: “This experience is eye opening because this is what it is all about: crime prevention and bringing hope to a youth stepping into an uncertain, shattered world with crime and often violent.”

Dr. Cherry expressed his sincere thanks to the Freewinds: “Thank you to the Freewinds
for coming to Saint Lucia, providing the powerful materials that you have, giving the
support, providing the training that you did. This is really remarkable and helpful. It

makes my job a lot easier on what I am trying to accomplish here in Saint Lucia. From
the bottom of my heart, from me personally and from my organization RISE Saint Lucia,
I wanted to say Thank you to the Freewinds and The Way to Happiness.”

The Way to Happiness is a nonreligious common sense guide to better living. It assists
in bringing about an increase in tolerance and understanding between families, friends,
groups, communities, nations and Mankind—making a safer, less violent world for all.

  1. We need a new president for Rise St.Lucia. Mr. Cherry is not the best and most effective leader when it comes to that. He does not even respond to messages sent to him, by desperate mothers needing help to care for their young children. All he could say is yes or no, he can’t help out. Assisting the most vulnerable will definately curb crime because guest what most of the criminals tell stories of their mom needed help and they did not have a choice but had to resort to stealing. Mr. Cherry its not about pretending to care, its about having passion and love for people. Wake up.

  2. MARIA: thank you very much for your wise and thoughtful contribution. I maybe old fashioned but I just don’t like these Caps. It depicts the mentality of the wearer; young, stupid and kind of associates, mainly Americanized. Now what the Heck is that ‘Church of Scientology’ doing in St. Lucia? Are they travelling by boat searching for ignorant people on these Islands for their weird purposes, whatever it may be? they should be Banned from setting foot in St. Lucia, but of course with this weird bunch in this Government, anything goes.
    @ Spoken:- obviously you have a problem; it seems that you want all business in St. Lucia to be owned and operated by Blacks – may I suggest to you my boy, do your self a favour, since you fell asleep in that dark Cave of yours, the World have moved on; Wake up, wake up thime to smell the Roses outside the Cave, its Spring time and the ‘Dandy Lions’ are in full bloom, they say, it beats Marijuana, is it true?

  3. Lmao Church of Scientology and Rise st lucia even more crime and spiritual warfare lucia lol.
    St lucia is becoming a foreign man’s land…. Blacks(lucians) working for white man, Chinese, Syrians, Japanese and the list goes on….. Why aren’t st lucians running their own homeland? Sellouts!

  4. Fight crime? 🤣 look one of the guys arrested for illegal gun possession was in an argument on IG with another fellar & quarreling that he shot some fellar name “small boy”…not if he’s still out then there’s no crime fighting on this island….He confessed on IG for the globe.

  5. We all appreciate help, but Rise St. Lucia this is meaningless, and it does not show any effort on your part. Just another PR stunt.

    Freewinds (The Church of Scientology) used you as a way to get their books distributed on our island.

    The Way to Happiness is a guide book that is the propaganda of the Church of Scientology, being used a recruitment tool.

    Mr. Cherry you are based in the US, plus you work in education, so you should be aware of all the controversies that the distribution of this book has caused in the school districts.

    The first lesson Mr. Cherry should be teaching our youth is that it is not appropriate to attend meetings/ interviews with a cap on one’s head; especially with this silly trend of the tag still attached. With all the modernity, do you see anyone at the White House press conferences with caps on? You see locks, not caps.
