After taking a step back the past year, we are excited to deliver supplies to Treasure Beach again in January 2022. Help us bring school supplies to rural Jamaica!

Our goals for this trip include:

  • Purchasing 6 tablets to give to students in the Treasure Beach area. There are still many children that are unable to distance learn because they do not have the technology. ($700-$1000)

  • Providing funding to complete the isolation room at Hopewell Primary. This room is for any students and staff to be isolated if ill. Isolation rooms are required for schools to reopen for in-person learning but these rooms are not paid for by the Ministry of Education. Hopewell still needs tile, paint, and info posters for the walls. ($500)

  • Giving backpacks filled with books, art/craft kits, and fun learning supplies to children in the Treasure Beach area. The past 2 years have been hard for the kids and they need rewards for being good distance-learners. ($200)


About Us:

School Supplies for Treasure Beach provides school supplies, laptops, and other educational support to schools and learning centers in St. Elizabeth Parish, Jamaica. The schools we help are in rural areas where children can face geographical and financial limitations finding adequate school supplies.

Education is free in Jamaica through grade 6, but books, supplies, uniforms, and transportation are not free. And getting in and out of rural areas is inconvenient to nearly impossible for many kids. Additionally, after grade 6, education is paid for out of pocket by families. Tuition plus additional fees can put further financial stress on families that already struggle. Our goal is to provide extra support to help these children stay and succeed in school.

We currently need: maps, books, learning tools & manipulatives, art supplies, crafting supplies, and tablets/laptops. Please contact us to make an in-kind donation of school supplies.

We are a 501(c)(3) charity. Donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
