The AHF honourary members programme was created to assist with the economic empowerment of the organisation. It is also designed to develop linkages between various young business people and persons residing outside the island in an effort to create additional international market exposure for their products and services.
HOW WILL THIS WORK?
It is simple; persons wishing to become honourary members completes an online registration form and submits it to the AHF by the means provided on the website. Persons are asked to read the By Laws of the AHF before registering. Honourary members are asked to commit to membership for periods of 3, 6 or 12 months with an option to continue and they pay monthly dues of $10. These dues are to be used directly to facilitate AHF projects. Dues may be submitted through the most convenient method for members and may be paid monthly, for the whole period of membership or for each half of the membership period. Honourary members are asked to encourage at least one other person to be a part of this programme. All members are expected to help grow subscription to our website.
Honourary members will be included in discussions for projects to garner their input. They will be kept abreast of project development and will also be included in all information pertaining to the AHF, including financial reports.
WHAT IS IN IT FOR AN HONOURARY MEMBER?
Satisfaction! The first thing an honourary member receives is the knowledge that by just contributing $10 monthly for the chosen timeframe he or she has helped in the development and empowerment of various people, especially young people on the small island of Barbados - the feeling that a big brother or sister gets when assisting a younger sibling.
Honourary members with businesses are offered free advertising on our website. They will also be entered into our online directory for members. It must be noted that advertising will end with the close of your honourary membership period, but your listing in our directory will remain. A wall of recognition and thanks will be constructed on the website where all honourary members’ names remain, past and present.
A TRIP TO BARBADOS
On achieving honourary membership of 300 persons, the AHF will present one member with a trip to Barbados, which includes airfare and accommodations for one week. This trip to Barbados will be awarded to the honourary member that has successfully encouraged the most people out of the 300 to become honourary members of the AHF for a 6 month period or more.
SO WILL YOU BECOME AN HONOURARY MEMBER?
Bottomline: Can you afford just 33 cents a day to assist with the building of this charity? Will you help us to help others? Many say this cannot be done, that the aims and goals of the AHF are not realistic, that it is too much work; they believe our people are too divided and too selfish to commit to anything like this. People will think you will be benefitting from this and will not trust you is what I am told. My response is: the world is a big place and “we” are spread across it like sand on the sea shores. When I say “we” I speak of people who have the betterment of less fortunate people than themselves in mind. When I say “we” I speak to the man and the woman who know our culture and heritage, including present realities, must be taught to our upcoming generations. “We” is the woman and the man who know that by giving just a little on a united front, a difference can be made. This is for the “we” who have nothing to lose and everything to gain by giving a little of their economic and social self. I am confident that 300 people will answer to this call and put their backbones to their brothers and sisters in Barbados.
300 mighty people who have broken the spell
Who see their duty standing in front of them like a mighty swell
We know united we will be righted
And no longer will we be slighted
We will put our backbones to our brothers and sisters beneath the Black, the Red, the Green
We know the Afrikan consciousness is calling us home
MAY OUR ANCESTORS CONTINUALLY GUIDE US AS WE STAND ON THEIR SHOULDERS. WE ASK FOR STRENGTH, ENDURANCE AND A WISE MIND ON THIS JOURNEY.
