VMBS Marriage and the Family Series

2014 Marriage and the Family 4

Strong Families and Stable Homes

The Victoria Mutual Foundation sees itself as being a part of the village that will raise Jamaica’s children. We believe that strong families and stable homes are the keys to making Jamaica the ideal place to live, work, raise families and do business.

Since 1987, the VMBS Marriage and the Family Series has been providing an annual family-centred forum to explore issues relating to the family and the institution of marriage.

The Series has four main components: seminars, counselling services, live entertainment and a children’s village. These activities are focused on upliftment and promoting excellence at the personal and family level. Financial planning, career development, parenting, love and family life are therefore the central topics explored throughout the forum.

Children’s Village

While the parents discuss issues affecting the family, the VM Proud team of volunteers entertain the energetic boys and girls in the Children’s Village. Each child has an opportunity to engage in fun activities including, face painting, balloon sculpting, art and craft and story time.
