BOTANY BAY, JAMAICA
We love these little ones and an education can be a life changing gift!
The St. Thomas education system is a struggle. School is free, but uniforms and textbooks are expenses that many families cannot afford. There is not a bus system in St. Thomas, so children take taxis to and from school and this is often an overwhelming expense for local families. Most homes do not have wifi and computers which are needed for homework.
Seaglass Ministries has paired with Hylton’s Family Foundation in Botany Bay, Jamaica to aid in making education an option for every child possible.
Some of the ways the education program is helping students is with offering students a place to do homework, study, and have after-school help. The HFAF is transforming the community center in Botany Bay into a beautiful after-school learning center with wifi, computers, desks, and space for learning.
