Our construction project provides women in Hagley Gap with a place where they can safely convene and build support networks within the community.
We will be rebuilding a women’s community center in the Hagley Gap District in Jamaica. Currently, women are excluded from traditionally male social and educational opportunities. This community center will provide a safe environment that will empower women through educational programs promoting literacy, personal safety and health.
We need to build tables and benches as well as install bookshelves and paint walls. If we refurbish the center through these construction projects, we will allow the community to reopen a place of support and education for women.
The community center will provide literacy programs and a place of support for over 500 women within the community and many more from surrounding areas. The support that this could offer for future generations of women is immeasurable and invaluable.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
