“Find JOY” and give your support!

“Find JOY” and give your support!

The Open Campus and Professor Emerita Vivienne Roberts have partnered for a book venture entitled: Finding Joy. Professor Roberts continues to demonstrate her commitment to giving through a personal scholarship, and this venture is another way of contributing to the Open Campus, more particularly, to the Endowment Legacy Fund.  The Finding Joy Books are written by Professor Emerita Vivienne Roberts, first and now former Deputy Principal of the Open Campus.

The Finding Joy collection is quite inspiring since it challenges you to find joy regardless of the season that confronts you in life. It is as though the author is beseeching the reader to not ignore your personal circumstance, but rather to have a positive perspective about the situation, which is to ‘Find Joy’.  

Volume 1 – Finding Joy in the Valley, on the Plain and the Mountain; 

Volume 2 - Finding Joy in Covid Times; 

Volume 3- Finding Joy in Retirement, and 

Volume 4 – Finding Joy in Bereavement. 

These books are beautiful, inspirational gifts for yourself or others, and they can be purchased individually or as a collection.

In Barbados, the books cost BDS$30 each or BDS$100 for the four-volume set. In Jamaica, the books cost J$2,175 each or J$7250 for the set. In the USA, they cost US$15 each and $50 for the set. The Alumni Relations Office located in Barbados currently has books in stock for purchase. For each collection sold, (for example: US$50.00 or BDS$100.00), the Open Campus Endowment Fund will receive a tenth of the sales which is US$5.00 or BDS$10.00.

The books can be ordered through Mrs. Sandra Griffith-Carrington at 1 (246) 851-4117 or through the Alumni Office by email at openphilantrophy@alumni.uwi.edu or you can go to the website at vivienne-roberts.com

Join this partnership by purchasing the books, to support this venture which directly contributes to building the Open Campus Endowment Legacy Fund.

SUPPORTGIVE, leave a LEGACY as you find joy, despite life’s challenges.
