Rainwater Catchment @ the Bluefields Basic School

The basic school, opened in the fall of 2014, serves children age 3-5 within Bluefields. It is situated centrally within the community, with a gorgeous mountaintop view. The school provides kids with a solid educational foundation, teaching colors, reading, math, science and more. They also provide lunch each day for the children.

The school has three classrooms and employs teachers, teachers aides, a principal and cooks. The dream when building the structure was to be off the grid, and we’ve teamed up with the community to install a water catchment system here. This allows for a sustainable way to have indoor plumbing, a true luxury for a school in rural Jamaica. To partner with us on projects such as these, check out the Give page.
