One of our longest running programmes is our Sponsorship/Scholarship programImageme.  This programme insures that 13 children from single parent families have lunch money and school fees.  We partner with parents in transportation costs.  With the help of funds from RC of Molome, IL, USA this programme ensures the continued support of these families.

Once a child has been accepted by us we commit to the child's entire education through High school.  We develop relationships with the families and have good rapport with most parents who share the desire to send their children to school regularly for education and proper socialization.

Consulting with the headmistress (principle) four new children have been identified as candidates for this programme.  Without our programme these children would be unable to attend school everyday due to the fees associated : uniform, books, transport and lunch

Alaskans Yvonne and Brian Cleary volunteered two years of their lives (2008-2010) in our Negril community.  Yvonne was a guidance counselor and teacher at Theodora Project (alternative school for ages 17-25).  Brian was the IT specialist and literacy teacher at Negril All Age School (NAAS).

When Yvonne and Brian returned to Negril on a holiday after 4 years, Rotarians coordinated a pizza party reunion on 11 June with former Theodora students and NAAS teachers. Image

“This gathering is beyond all expectations and you’ll never know how much we miss and are in awe of all of you!” said Yvonne.

ImageThe 24 Grade 4 students we helped at Negril All Age School took their test the first week of June; unfortunately, we will not know the results until start of school in September.

We wish to thank each of the 22 volunteer tutors for their dedication and patience!  The love between student and tutor was obvious – as many times, the minute a student saw their tutor enter the school ground, he or she would grab their book bag, and stand up at Ms. Johnson’s desk awaiting permission to go.  Most of the tutors found the desired session was after 10 am when the public library opened and we were welcomed to work in that spacious and quiet environment.  A portion of the hour was often spent in the library’s computer room on learning sites such as Starfall and Mrnussbaum.

This programme will start up again in October with the handful of students who do not pass the Grade 4 test.  We are dialoguing with school officials to begin working with students in either Grade 1 or 2 to assist those who are struggling with reading at a younger age.

ImageImageFor the past six months twenty 4th graders & five 5th graders benefitted from the Negril Rotary Literacy Programme.  Students and volunteer tutors concentrated on reading comprehension and critical thinking skills.  Our tutors were both local Negrilites and international visitors.  Along with the focus on literacy, other bonds were built.  Students thrived by not only the intellectual connections but by the compassion of the tutors.  It was evident that the students blossomed with the dedication and commitments from their mentors.  The heart-warming connections were expressed by everyone as they had to say farewell for the year.

Rotary Negril teamed with Dream Team Divers to provide pre-training and support for 8 young men who were striving to obtain Certified Lifeguard credentials through the Royal Life Saving Society

The project was an overwhelming success, with 7 of the 8 participants receiving their credentials and becoming immediately employable in the industry.  The pre-training included all aspects of first aid and CPR, as well as swimming and rescue techniques.  Participants were supported with funding from Negril Rotary for pre-training, Royal Life Saving Society training, a tutor for reading skills, as well as travel and lunch funds.

 The second,and perhaps equally important element of the Programme “Get Kids to School”, iscalled "Get Registered".  Thisaspect is intended to encourage and provide support to parents and children toobtain basic required documentation, such as identity cards and birthcertificates, necessary to function effectively and progress in the course ofeveryday life.  The process of obtainingthese documents is often daunting.Image
