The Rockhouse Foundation transforms the places where Jamaica's children learn and supports the people who teach them.
The Rockhouse Foundation over the past decade has invested over US$4 million in projects improving education for the children in the Negril area. Since its inception, 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 (SIIA), in addition to the complete renovation and expansion of the Negril Community Library.
The Savanna-la-Mar Inclusive Infant Academy (SIIA) is a brand new school purposely built to service those with special needs in an inclusive environment. This inclusion model, mixed ability, special needs early childhood school addresses a demand that has been expanding dramatically, and for which there are no services in the western half of Jamaica.
The Rockhouse Foundation focuses its resources and energy towards improving early childhood education institutions, affirming empirical evidence that all children, but especially poor children, need a solid foundation in order to thrive academically throughout their education and, consequently, as self-determining members of society. After two projects improving facilities and programming in separate rural communities we have now moved to the inner city of Savanna-la-Mar, the Parish’s capital, for our latest project.
Through these projects the Rockhouse Foundation directly impacts the lives of thousands of young people and their families.
