Our people

A Steering Committee (SC), comprising of founding and actively involved donors, directs the strategy. They analyse and approve grants and use their personal networks to broaden the base of supporters. The SC members have a wide array of backgrounds and interests but all share a passion for the environmental protection of Barbados.

Our local team consists of one person as the local Executive Director in charge of day-to-day management and coordination work on the ground, assisted by advisors and the SC.

And of course, we are eternally grateful to our supporters for their contribution to the BECT by way of financial donation and/or time!


  • Ché Greenidge

    Executive Director

    Ché is no stranger to the environmental space as her passion for environmental conservation began from her early teens through small acts of service. She is an avid believer in volunteerism and has spent many years giving back to various non-profits on the island. 

    Ché holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and International Relations, and studied at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus in Barbados and York University in Toronto, Canada. Her years of experience in the non-profit sector at the local and international level placed climate resilience and sustainability at the forefront of her professional experience. These passions have led to many accomplishments in her NGO career through successful fundraising and grant writing, project development and management, and communications. Ché is known in the industry for ‘getting things done’. Her dedication to the growth of the non-profit sector, or Third Sector, is fuelled by her belief that NGOs will positively change the landscape and future of Barbados.

    “Grassroots organisations need as much support as possible. They are the boots on the ground, closest to the everyday situations and ideas for solutions that will drive major impact. I am privileged to continue this tremendous work at the BECT.”


Our Way

We strongly believe that supporting local resources can make a strong positive impact and bring about serious long-lasting change!

To do so, we raise money from people all over the world, as well as from local individuals and businesses that care and rely on the future of Barbados. We ensure funds are directed appropriately and are dedicated to supporting the most effective environmental projects and campaigns. We support organizations, experts, individuals and associations already present in Barbados, who are working to protect and restore the natural environment and trying to influence both policy and practice.

Our funding is flexible, independent and long term.
