Voluntourism School Build
St. Elizabeth, Jamaica
DATES: JUNE 24-29, 2019
Build Trip Info
Twenty-five volunteers will join us for our 2019 voluntourism trip; our days will consist of building the school from foundation to completion as well as exploring, relaxing and soaking up the colorful culture that is Jamaica. We are staying at Jakes Hotel in Treasure Beach and are building an additional standalone six unit structure to expand Fyffes Pen primary school.
The community of Fyffes Pen is one of oldest settlements in south western St. Elizabeth, getting its name from the surname Fyffe and has a population of approximately 1,000 residents. Fyffes Pen primary school is in need of additional classroom space, as there is not enough space for the students and teachers to interact in an environment that is conducive to learning. Often students and teachers are forced to walk through other classrooms in order to access the principal’s office, library or get to another classroom. There is not enough ventilation, making it hot and students act out in frustration. The lack of space also limits which student programs can be further developed or implemented.
Cost: $2,495 CAD with airfare from Toronto to Kingston, Jamaica
$1,895 CAD without airfare
Kids (under 12): $1,999 CAD with airfare from Toronto to Jamaica
Date: June 24-28, 2019
