A local community group in the rough and underserved Kemps Road area that operate under the international Pathfinders organization to save children from being lost to the streets and help them “find their path” to a better life.
The Pathfinder Club is a local, non-profit, community group in the underserved Kemps Road area of Nassau where there are many at risk youth. It operates under the highly respected international Pathfinder organization to save children from being lost to the streets and help them “find their path” to a better life. The co-directors are Dr. Flloyd Carter and his wife, Anastasia. Dr. Carter is a medical doctor who credits Pathfinder with keeping him from the streets and finding his direction in life. Other persons on the Board who work with the children include teachers, a nurse and a Royal Bahamas Defense Force Commander.
Pathfinder is one of the largest uniformed youth organizations in The Bahamas. This Club is located on Parkgate Road in the Kemp Road community of Nassau. They presently have 34 registered children ranging in age from 4 – 16 and meet weekly. With support from BCGF the Club launched a marching Drum Corps in 2018. While some pathfinders have gone off to medical training and nursing, the Club found others were having reading difficulties. Those with reading difficulties have since been connected with Project READ Bahamas (another recipient of BCGF support) to learn better reading skills.
