Victoria Rowell and son Jasper are on a mission of inspiration with the Caribbean Foundation’s Project ASPIRE. Designed to empower and nurture children within the foster care system, Project ASPIRE promotes athletic and artistic skills that help children express themselves on a daily basis.
“Our goal is to promote community service and leadership in educational experiences through cross-cultural exchange,” says Rowell. “This program will give our children from the United States a greater exposure and understanding of different cultures and encourage them to take part in community service. It will improve the self-confidence and interpersonal skills of our Caribbean children while raising their awareness and understanding of the diversity of communities. By taking a creative approach to learning, activities and shared experiences, we hope to make a lifelong lasting impression through Project ASPIRE. We want to enhance our participants’ connection through meaningful community activity and involvement,” explains the actress.
A product of the foster care system, Victoria has firsthand experience on the lengthy waiting and constant moving that children must endure when placed in child protective custody. She aspires to alleviate some of the pain that comes along with instability.
Rowell has two children in all.
