Alica

Alica is a single mother living in a very remote area within St. Ann. Currently, their water source is a gully which is 1.5 miles away from their farm. They grow cabbage, bok choy, and carrots. Access to stored water for Alica would be life changing, providing her family with the ability to increase crop yield and grow their income

Donnette

Thanks the generosity of the Yardie Greeks Facebook Community, A collective group of Jamaicans with membership in the Divine 9 Black-Greek Letter Organizations (BGLOs), we have raised enough funds for funding the water tank for Donnette.


A portion of the the Yardie Greeks donation will be used with existing matching funds toward the next campaign.


We are so thankful to our donors and for your continued support. 


Marcia

Thanks to our supporters and donors, we've reached our goal of funding an 800-gallon water tank for Marcia in St. Ann, Jamaica. Thank you all so much! Our next steps will be to acquire, deliver, and install the tank and provide best-practice irrigation training with the help of our local partners in Jamaica. Follow us here or on social media to see how things progress.
