In a major project, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle`s Archewell foundation has funded the Soufriere Primary School to build a kitchen.
Last year the couple`s organisation formed a partnership with the World Central Kitchen, managed by a celebrity chef Jose Andres. The partnership`s main purpose is to construct a series of community relief centres.
In a combined statement at the end of 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan said: “The health of our communities depends on our ability to connect with our shared humanity.
“When we think about Chef Andres and his incredible team at World Central Kitchen, we’re reminded that even during a year of unimaginable hardship, there are so many amazing people willing and working tirelessly to support each other.”

The new Soufriere Primary School facility is meant to ensure that children do not go hungry as well as help local chefs.
When the partnership was published last year, it revealed that its first centre would be constructed in Dominica and the second in Puerto Rico.
Simon Walsh, project manager of Resilient Dominica Project (REZDM), said: “The World Central Kitchen looks at this as also a kitchen that is here in the event of another major disaster. This kitchen is going to be very well set up to cook in the event of an emergency, they will be able to feed many people very, very quickly, and that’s a serious aspect.”
