Reading Center for 188 students in Jamaica

by Shashamane Sunrise

Summary

The Windsor Forest Primary school is located on the eastern end of Jamaica. It is a Canadian type building- which includes six classes, a canteen, a staff room, a principal's office and a small library. The school has a large spacious playfield in front of the building. Windsor Forest is predominantly a poor, rural, farming community with no sustained corporate/financial support. This project will furnish and equip the Reading Resource center to serve the students and the community.

Challenge

Many of the residents of Windsor Forest are not educated; therefore, there is no heavy emphasis on getting their children educated. The school is well in need of resources such as computers, desk, chairs and books. Currently there are about 188 students in six classrooms. This means the classroom are full to capacity and teachers do not have the luxury of paying attention to the learning needs of the individual student.

Solution

Our goal is to fully equip the learning resource/study room so that teachers can take time to address particular learning needs of the students. We also intend to improve education at the school by providing the computers and other e-learning devices to put these students on par with students in first world countries.

Long-Term Impact

Shashamane Sunrise believes that the quality of life in Windsor Forest can be improved by lifting the standard of education at the school. This will give the students a better foundation from which they can move on to greater things. It will give them more diverse options when choosing a career. They will also be able to lend support to their parents and other members of the community, who did not benefit from a formal education.
