The Skills Training Empowerment Programme (STEP) has made a positive difference in the lives of differently-abled persons allowing them to become increasingly independent while generating an income to become self-sufficient.Director of STEP, Wendell Wattley, said the skills training and work programme currently supports the work of the St. Kitts and Nevis Association of Persons with Disabilities.
Clarice Cotton, a member of the Board of Directors at ADE’s Place, explained that the private institution conducts classes in art and craft, and agriculture. Life skill sessions also take place, as well as instruction in cooking, washing, ironing, singing and dancing. The private facility caters to graduates of the Cotton Thomas Comprehensive School.
