Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
