(MENAFN- EIN Presswire)

GUADELOUPE, July 8, 2024 /EINPresswire / -- Epitome Editions has announced the launch of“My Caribbean Family Textbook”, a pioneering educational tool crafted by Lynda Francisque, a devoted mother and fervent advocate for Caribbean culture. This textbook is designed to enrich primary education with the vibrant culture and unity of the Caribbean, addressing the need for representation and fostering a sense of pride among young students.

Filling a Critical Gap in Cultural Education
Francisque, a passionate Caribbean native, noticed a significant void in cultural representation within existing educational resources. Inspired by her own experiences and her 10-year-old son Miles' desire for connection to their heritage, she created“My Caribbean Family Textbook”. This project aims to provide children with an educational tool that connects them to their roots and instills a deep sense of cultural pride.

The Caribbean Homework Diary celebrates shared DNA, history, environment, habits and appearances. It emphasizes the richness of a common Caribbean heritage while honoring the unique cultural identity within the region.“By claiming ownership of this valuable legacy, we can equip the next generation to face future challenges together, from biodiversity preservation to tackling the sargassum invasion,” said Francisque.

A Comprehensive Educational Tool
“My Caribbean Family” goes beyond traditional learning materials by fostering knowledge, positive representation, cultural empowerment, self-confidence and unity. These values are essential for nurturing committed citizens who will lead the Caribbean into a brighter future. It is a bilingual publication featuring Creole expressions to ensure it is accessible and inclusive for all young learners.

The first edition is scheduled for distribution in Guadeloupe, Dominica, Saint-Martin/Sint Maarten, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, and Barbados. The textbook will be available through mainstream distribution channels and accessible to families and educators throughout the region.

Supporting the Vision

Contributions will help offer the textbook at preferential rates for early orders, provide free copies to children from low-income households, and further Epitome Editions' mission to promote cultural heritage.

Cultural activists and enthusiasts are welcome to join the ambassadors' team and amplify the message of cultural pride and unity across the Caribbean.
