It is precisely the mission of supporting the growth of education that has made this team go beyond the extreme, and in their efforts with partnering organizations they will also join in aim to build a library called the Keturah Hamilton library and an orphanage in one of these needy communities. This is a way we can show these students that with focus, determination, and the proper education they can build a better Jamaica.
