    JAMAICA

    Project: Savannah-la-Mar Inclusion Infant Academy, Westmoreland Jamaica
    Our Goal: $10,000 to help build a special-needs school for children aged 3-5 years old [update: this goal has been met! Thank you!]
    Partner: Rockhouse Foundation

    The Savannah-la-Mar Inclusion Infant Academy will offer developmental services to both special needs children and average learners who until now have been deprived of adequate care. In some cases it's because the system is unable to offer facilities and adequately trained professional care. In other cases the kids simply can't afford it or travel far enough to get the treatment they need.

    This school, envisioned and constructed by Rockhouse Foundation, will be the region's first Special Needs inclusion model early childhood school in the region. A trained staff of teachers, caregivers, therapists and healthcare professionals will not only create the highest quality special needs school community, but also train teachers and parents to identify and work with children with developmental delays and physical disabilities.

    Project: Bethsaida Children's Center
    Our Goal: $1,000 to help keep the children in school and help the center recover from a recent fire. [update: this goal has been met! Thank you!]

    Bethsaida Children's Center opened their doors in 2012 to provide a home for destitute and orphaned children, giving them a place to call home. The center helps the children with after-school activities, and provides supplies to help them with their studies.

    Bethsaida Children Center’s long term visions include:

    • Workshops for counseling of single, teenage and raped mothers who tend to be most vulnerable to abandoning their children. This is a programme we hope will eventually spread throughout the country
    • Educating and giving teenage mothers a second chance at life after birth by acting as a halfway house for the children while the mothers go back to school and as soon as they finish school, they can come back for their children.
