Mama G (AKA Georgene Crowe, co-founder of Great Shape! Inc.) arrived in Jamaica last week to collaborate and strategize with our partner schools, to assess some new projects with Papa Joe (AKA Joseph Wright, Executive Director) who has been in Jamaica since the end of January, and to have a little fun on her hometown beach. Co-Founder, Gretchen Lee, will arrive in the next week to join the team.
Mama G sent this update:
I saw Mrs. Guthrie, the Principal at Mount Airy All Age School in Negril, at the bank today, she was so excited we are in town. Our volunteers will be very happy to know the computers are being used daily by the students! Teachers go in with them to learn & teach. The school had an inspection by MOE (The Ministry of Education) and they were quite impressed with the computer lab, books, etc. Mrs. Guthrie would now like to have a computer in each classroom for the teachers to work with students at break time… the at-risk reading children.
Mrs. Guthrie is looking forward to Gretchen’s and my visit in the next couple of weeks. She’s a great partner for Great Shape! Inc. and a great principal.
We wish you were all here! I am at our much loved “home” Negril Beach Club. The owner, Jean has asked about you all. One Love!
