HELPING HANDS JAMAICA BUILDING A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR THE CHILDREN OF JAMAICA
Alyssa Mahadeo - Toronto Caribbean - Feb 16, 2016
All across the globe, we hear of many different initiatives and organizations all working toward their own cause hoping to change the world and stimulate growth in the years to come. For over ten years the Helping Hands Jamaica Foundation (HHJF) has been actively working to improve the lives of the next generation of Jamaicans, by implementing world-class education systems through financing infrastructure developments, resource materials and expertise.
Founder and Chair of Helping Hands Jamaica, Karl Hale was living in Toronto at the time and he was very much aware of the social and economical changes of his homeland in the Caribbean. Originally hailing from Falmouth, Jamaica, Hale desired to help his people in anyway that he could. Through his success as a tennis player, working as the Tournament Director of the Rogers Cup Tennis Tournament in Toronto and being a member on the board for very prestigious tennis coaching organizations, Hale had built a network of organizations and individuals that he could potentially work with to implement this mission.
