In 2008, one Forjando Liderazgo event was conducted in Barbados, impacting 62 participants and their communities. This event was very prestigious, and the participants were very serious about working to combat drug issues on the island. The acting Prime Minister, Mr. Freundel Stuart, M.P., Attorney General and Minister of Home Affairs, opened the event and made some poignant remarks about the responsibility of all citizens of Barbados to help keep their communities safe. As a direct result of this event, several NGOs, coordinated under the National Council on Substance Abuse, have sought to establish a formal coalition to enhance their drug demand reduction efforts. At last contact, the group was putting bylaws and organizational protocols into place.
