Jenga Jumiuya is thrilled to partner with The Jet Set Fete for an exciting new project on the tri-island nation of Grenada. Our project will be focused on the island of Carriacou, where we are currently raising funds for the renovation of the Dover Primary School.
The students of the Dover School range in ages from 5-12 years. The school serves a population of roughly 500 people in the northernmost part of the island.
Aim: The goal of this project is to renovate the current fence around the school, providing security and a safe boundary for the students to learn, play and grow.
Cost: The project is expected to cost $3,000.
As with all projects facilitated by Jenga Jumuiya, a name which means “Building Community” in Swahili, the Dover School Project t is borne from the needs of the local community.
The project was requested directly by the community with the hope that by giving their children an opportunty to excel in life through education, the well-being of the community as a whole would improve.
Initially about 145 kids will benefit directly from the project. While indirectly, the project will benefit further generations, the parents and relatives of these children, and the entire Carriacou community, as well as the outlying communities of the island nation.
Our Process: As with all Jenga Jumuiya projects, we will be working directly with the community — hand in hand — to complete this project.
