August 2015 – The Bluefields Basic School, opened in the fall of 2014, serves children age 3-5 within the Bluefields area. It is situated centrally within the community, with a gorgeous mountaintop view. The school provides kids with an early 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 teamed up with the community to install a rainwater catchment system here. This allows for a sustainable and effective way to have indoor plumbing, a true luxury for a school in rural Jamaica.
