St Andrew’s Development Organisation (SADO), established in 1986, is located in the town of Grenville, parish of St Andrew, on the Caribbean Island of Grenada. In response to the closing of the Pearls Airport in the parish and the concern over the lack of
tourism initiatives in the area, SADO was constituted with the following goals:
1. To develop the parish of St. Andrew culturally.
2. To foster (a) a better relationship among parishioners and
(b) a better relationship among parishes
3. To encourage visitors to come to the parish of St. Andrew.
With the absence of any local governing body, SADO’s intent was to join hands with the government to identify areas of
development for the parish.
