About Sarah’s Child

The Sarah’s Children Charity was recently launched on March 8, 2018 on International Women’s Day at the Hilton Rose Hall Hotel and Spa in St. James, Montego Bay.

The focus of the charity is to spread awareness that it is not ok to remain silent when witnessing abuse. They wish to provide all the protection possible for our children and our elderly.

Sarah’s Children is the result of realising founder, Janet Silvera’s dream as well as her friends’ with the same vision to honour her mother, Sarah Darling-Findlay who led by example. They also share the same desire to give a voice to those without a voice.

Rotaract District 7020 and 7030 Join Efforts to Aid the BVI Autism Centre

District 7020 Rotaract Representative, Jevaughn Rhymer and members of his District Board handing over Learning aids to the BVI Autism Centre last Thursday, April 12.

Rotaract District 7020 (RD7020) is a non-profit organization, which is the youth arm of Rotary District 7020 and by extension, Rotary International. RD720  has clubs across the Caribbean such as Jamaica, Cayman Islands, St. Maarten (Dutch), St. Martin (French), Haiti, Anguilla, The Bahamas, Tortola (B.V.I), St. Thomas (U.S.V.I) and the Turks and Caicos Islands. In honour of Rotary’s World Autism Month, Rotaract District 7020’s Representative, Jevaughn Rhymer and members of his District Board handed over learning aids to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) Autism Centre last Thursday, April 12.

The items were purchased from the donations given by Rotaract District 7030 (including clubs from St. Kitts & Nevis, Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname) after Hurricane Irma hit the island.

Rotaractors will continue to work with the Autism Centre and assist with post hurricane revival efforts.

Kudos to RD7020 and RD7030!

Wing Sauce Competition and Farmer’s Market this Saturday in Mona!

Screenshot_2018-03-13-15-17-16-1.png

There are so many things happening this weekend! Not to worry though, if you schedule your time well, you can make it to all of the events.

Non-profit organization, New Kingston Rotaract Club (Youth arm of Rotary) is having their annual Wing Sauce Competition this Saturday, March 24th by the Mona Dam. However, this time they are also having a Farmer’s Market encouraging us to eat healthy and buy our local produce, while contributing to charity at the same time. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Judging and sampling usually takes place at about 2:30/3:00pm. Suga will be judging too!

So, after returning from the Jamaica Coffee Festival in Newcastle, you can make your way over to the Mona Dam. You can enjoy watching non-profit organizations battle to become the Wing Sauce Champs, probably sample a few tasty wings, buy some fresh, local produce and then head over to the National Stadium to see our Boys and Girls Champs. After all, the hot races are usually run in the late afternoon and evening.

You can then pat yourselves on the back for supporting Brand Jamaica, contributing to Charity and supporting our future in Education and Athletics all in one day. Scouts from some of the best colleges around the world will be at the National Stadium to watch and recruit our athletes.

Keep up with the New Kingston Rotaract Club by following them on Instagram @nkrcjamaica and if you are between the ages of 18-30, see how you can join them!

Stay tuned for your update on the Jamaica Coffee Festival later this week!

Get your dose of Vitamin M!

Today’s spotlight hails from Kingston, Jamaica! I tease Gabrielle all the time because I seriously don’t know what she can’t do. Read how she’s managed to escape to her creative side while still working in the hardworking medical field.

Growing up, I always wanted to be a Doctor (Obstetrician) and do Art on the side. I eventually realized that even though the income would be great after the initial struggle of paying off a hefty student loan, I would not have the time on my hands that I would desire to be the Free Spirit that I am. I still entered the field of Health Care as a Radiologic Technologist. It’s a skill and I enjoy the field. But it wasn’t enough for me as a young adult who just started working in 2010, that used to be the President of at least 2 service Clubs, while sitting on the committee of others, also engaging in modern dance and other sporting activities. I felt like I also started life 3 years behind my high school peers who did not do a 2nd Degree and who were fortunate enough to have their parents pay their way through tertiary education for them. While I had not one, but two degrees worth of Student Loans.

My walls were empty when I moved out on my own into my apartment and I said, ‘Why buy paintings when I can paint them myself?’. I officially started my company, GW Art with seasonal Collections, that has grown so much since then and still has some way to go.
I started to help a friend train her Boot camp (aerobics) class in 2011 too. She had to leave the country for a year and I did so well administering and training classes that I eventually branched out on my own. I got certified in both Personal Training and Sports Nutrition. After a timid start to do this on my own, I thrived by seeing positive results in my clients and being a part of and changing person’s lives. I am now confident and in demand in the Fitness Industry in Jamaica.

I currently find ways to express my 3 fields along with Hobbies, which include Restaurant Reviews, Sports and more on my Website, http://www.sugalifestyle.com. This continuously inspires me and makes me feel like I can branch out even more! #blackentrepreneurship #blackexcellence
