Launching Trade-Works Foundation to continue providing skilled trade education to those in need, See More

THE STORY:

With your help we can support and supply these students to reach their greatest potential.

In America the thoughts of vision and a path to success are so ingrained in our culture yet I have seen first hand in Jamaica, Africa, and other cultures that those thoughts have been overshadowed by basic survival. I believe given training, and clear steps to the next level we can uplift and support the next generation into productive members of the planet.

In service to this mission, beginning in September I will be volunteering in Jamaica for several months with The Rockhouse Foundation and Heart Trust.

Heart Trust: http://www.heart-nta.org/About1

This program takes able-bodied people and gives them the opportunity to learn a skilled trade allowing them to be productive members of society. Cosmetology is one of their most sought after programs. They foster the idea that together we can inspire others to take their career as far as they want to go, that it will take work, training, and patience. Through various lectures and workshops, my goal is that these cosmetology students will leave with a highlighted path to accomplish there dreams; believe that they are worth it and more than capable.  

The Rockhouse Foundation:www.rockhousefoundation.org

An organization that has rebuilt 5 schools ready for closure due to lack of support and funds.  This inturn has allowed hundreds of kids to receive a proper education. They have built a full service library and currently in the process of building Jamaica’s first special needs school in Negril. In this program, I will be working with the children daily in these schools, teaching/tutoring. I will also be participating in big picture strategic planning, helping with local events, and other areas to bring awareness. These kids live in a very rural area of Jamaica and the support for the schools is close to zero, so increasing awareness is imperative to the success of these children and this foundation.

                                                  :::

This next journey I am embarking on will be several months long as well as a huge transition in my life.  As time moves on, I am enlightened to what really matters for humanity and inspired to give just as much as I have been given in this life. With your support, together we can make the greatest impact. Seeds sown physically or financially equally spread love and show others in need that we are all here for each other.

Helping financially for these programs will not only assist in me being there to volunteer but mainly to bring new supplies to the schools, create extra curricular activities, and bless the students with filling various needs they may have.  It is important that each student obtains the correct tools to reach their greatest potential.

I want to thank you so much for your time and help in reaching these goals.  I am excited to say that I will be matching funds raised! Thank you in advance for your donations. Please don't think of any donation is too small or large; if even a mustard seed can move a mountain your donation can help impact the world.
