The Caribbean has it all. Year-round sun, crystal blue seas, white sand, some of the most amazing dive sites in the world, fascinating flora and fauna, vibrant music, luxury shopping and Indians! There are 13 independent countries that make up the Caribbean and each one is as different and diverse to another. From 1838 to 1917, over half a million Indians from the former British Raj were taken to thirteen mainland and island nations in the Caribbean as indentured workers to address the demand for sugar cane plantation labour following the abolition of slavery. The migrations led to a significant presence of people of Indian origin, (close to 3 million), that today call the Caribbean home. They continue to prosper in countries like Guyana, St Lucia, St Kitts and Nevis, Grenada, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Martinique and St Vincent. There are also small communities in The Bahamas, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize and Dominican Republic (to name a few!). Join us as we discover, celebrate and learn more about who we have become. Our Global Indian Caribbean journey has begun.

AN APPEAL TO THE PRESIDENT OF MALAWI AND THE LEADERS OF INDUSTRY.
