Rome wasn’t built in a day, but only because the city didn’t have Helping Hands Jamaica Foundation and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment on the construction site.
In a week’s time, the two Canadian groups built a basic school for 40 children, upgraded a primary school for 150 students, and installed a basketball court, playground and sanitation unit in Jamaica.
“What a great project this turned out to be,” said Karl Hale, founder and chair of Helping Hands Jamaica.
Watch how the team pulled off the school project, which is part of Food For The Poor’s 50/50 School Campaign to mark Jamaica’s 50 years of independence. The goal is to build or rebuild one basic school on the island over 50 months.
