Friendship Primary School Breakfast Feeding Program
200 children, ranging from age 6 to 12 are served in this project. Jamaica YES provides funding for Friendship Primary School, St. Catherine, Jamaica breakfast program. Friendship is a low-income area where many children come to school hungry. Breakfast allows nourishment so that students are better able to focus on their lessons. Local and basic food items, like fish fritters, egg, hot cornmeal porridge, milk, cheese and crackers are provided. Jamaica YES was founded in 2004 but the project has been funded by UNWG since 2012.
Maxfield Park Children's Home Basic School project
JAMPACT was launched in 1998 by Jamaicans living abroad, which created the adopt-a-school program to ensure the highest quality of education for children in their very earliest years. This project supports the Maxfield Park children's home basic school, for 3-6 year old students, which is located in Kingston. These children are either orphans or victims of abuse. The inadequate facilities in which the children are being schooled, amenities, as well as school supplies are the main concern of the project. The UNWG has been supporting the project since 2012.
