Press Release:-  Soufriere Regional Development Foundation (SRDF) is one step closer to
combating the issues of visitor harassment and soliciting at the Soufriere waterfront. Last week, a workshop was held for parents of the minors involved.

The workshop which was facilitated by Social Worker, Mr. Stephen Edwards, focused on child maltreatment, capacity building and leadership, substance use and abuse as well as conflict resolution and anger management.

“We anticipated that the workshop would create avenues for positive influences, sustainable and viable living options; education and sensitization; educate individuals on the tourism product and its importance on their livelihoods to deter criminality and make opportunities available to the community and environs,” said Operation Manager, Lester Cazaubon.

Other resource personnel present at the workshop included Father Ignatius Cetoute and members of the Royal St. Lucia Police Force.

  1. I think tourist harassment at the Soufriere waterfront is being overblown. There may be a few teenagers trying to sell craft to tourist or a few asking for money but this is not only in Soufriere . The tourists are critical to our economy but we can’t treat them like gods. They experience the same or worse in their original countries. The problem seems to stem from poverty and lack of parenting. SRDF needs to continue providing the young people and their families with social support.
