This initiative has been praised by the citizens and residents of the country as it will provide a gateway to learning and grow. One of the social media users from Saint Lucia, named Annabel St Clair, expressed her thoughts on the initiative and mentioned, “That is a wonderful opportunity for people Like me. I have thrived on opening my own restaurant and bar. I love to cook. I love challenging myself… I would love to grab this opportunity and build myself and build a business I know that would succeed.”

Another user named Maria Fontenelle outlined that “It is great to see opportunities extended to youth though $2000 is so inadequate. The business training, if well done, should be quite valuable.” And the third one commented, “And I am patiently waiting to learn new skills.”

It is anticipated that this training session will surely contribute to employment and job creation in the island country of Saint Lucia. It has been counted as one of the steps taken by the government to assist the youth in getting better training and jobs.
