To address the issue of bullying within schools in Antigua and Barbuda the Halo Foundation sought the expertise assistance of Mr. Shawn Clarke, the only trained and certified Olweus Bullying Prevention Officer in the Caribbean to implement the Olweus Bullying Prevention Programme in three primary and three secondary schools on the island. The Maria Holder Memorial Trust has provided funding over a two period for the implantation of this programme within these schools.
