The Rockhouse Foundation has been transforming learning environments in the Negril Area for over fifteen year. Originally focused on the renovation public primary schools the foundation broadened its focus to include the Negril Library and the past five years has been concentrating on early childhood education. This change in emphasis affirms empirical evidence that all children, but especially poor children, need a solid education foundation in order to thrive throughout their education and become self-determining members of society.
Rockhouse Foundation has invested over US$6 million to help expand Jamaica’s childhood education system. Since its inception in 2003, the Foundation has completely transformed and modernized six schools: Moreland Hill Primary and Infant Schools, Negril All Age School, Negril Basic School, Little Bay All Age and Infant Schools, Bunch of Stars E.C.I., and Savanna-la-Mar Inclusive Infant Academy (Sav Inclusive), in addition to the complete renovation and expansion of the Negril Community Library.
Through all these projects the Rockhouse Foundation directly impacts the lives of thousands of young people and their families in western Jamaica.
