The Barbados Association of Greater Houston will promote cultural and educational activities with the goal of fostering better relations between citizens of Houston and the United States, and Barbados and the Caribbean. These goals are pursued through the promotion and presentation of events designed to afford Barbadians and Americans opportunities to foster cultural and social understanding. It is believed that such cultural exchanges facilitate the integration of Barbadians into the Houston community and American society, as well as acquaint Americans with characteristics of Barbados and its people.
Specific objectives are: To promote education to the highest levels by providing financial and tutorial assistance; To promote social appreciation and understanding by performing public service; To raise funds by solicitation of grants and sponsorships.
The BAGH places a premium on the passing on of heritage to future second generation Barbadian-Americans. In this regard, the BAGH conducts several activities with the intent of accomplishing this goal.
