Welcome to the website of The Garifuna Heritage Foundation Inc. of St. Vincent and the Grenadines!
TGHF is a non-profit organization whose vision is to be the leading advocate and promoter of the Garifuna Heritage and culture in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and rest of the Caribbean.
For the past few years, we at TGHF have been working hard to promote the Garifuna Heritage and culture in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, known by our Garifuna brothers and sisters in the Diaspora as Yurumei, the Ancestral Homeland. We have been successful in developing working partnerships and communication links between us and the traditional Garifuna Communities in Yurumei , as well as the communities and organizations in the Garifuna Diaspora. In recent times we have been playing a pivotal role in bringing to the forefront of the debate on cultural matters here in Yurumei, this aspect of the National Heritage .
This website is a key element in fulfilling our mission to become self-sufficient and making sure that everyone has access to our information, resources, programs and events.
