On January 12, 2019, the Rotaract Club of New Kingston started the new year the right way. They coordinated a Treat for the Homeless at the Marie Atkins Night Shelter on Hanover Street, Downtown, Kingston.

Suga Lifestyle was more than happy to be a sponsor for the event, along with Jamaica Producers, Kirk Distributors Ltd., Cari-Med Ltd., Best Dressed Jamaica Ltd. and Refresh Beauty Soap.

I saw the event through and it was a success once again this year. Persons that lived at the home along with other members of the surrounding community, came out in their numbers to receive various services and items offered such as Medical checks, Dental and Cleaning checks, HIV Screening, Personal Grooming, Eye screening by the Lions Club, Canned Food and Clothing Donations.

Suga was delegated the task of adding a personal touch to speak to attendees about proper Nutrition. Their options may have been limited, but points made by conversations with several of them were of great help. For instance, to choose boiled ground provisions instead of rice and peas or plain rice and to drink water instead of sugary, fruit punch or fruit juices.

The non-profit organization, Rotaract Club of Kingston, also known as the youth arm of Rotary, in particular the Rotary Club of Kingston, has a major education project this year. The goal is to assist select schools in reaching the criteria for full recognition as Early Childhood Institutes by the Early Childhood Commission.

Knowing that 12 standards matter, the Rotaract Club of Kingston completed the first phase by donating chairs, desks and learning aids to the St. Barnabas Basic School of Fletcher’s Land on January 30, 2018.

Kudos to the Rotaract Club of Kingston and the Early Childhood Commission for helping to develop Jamaica’s early childhood education!

TBT to Rotaract Club of Kingston’s Partnership Project with Every Mikkle Jamaica!

Rotary and partners in Rotary, Rotaract, serve their communities wherever they see a void and opportunity for improvement. They also help with developing young minds and develop their own members personally and professionally as well.

Every Mikkle Jamaica is another non-profit organization that creates positive memories for Jamaica’s Orphaned and at-risk children.

The Rotaract Club of Kingston partnered with Every Mikkle Jamaica and visited the National Children’s Home in Papine during World Rotaract Week in March of this year.

They interacted with the kids, assisted with repairs to their Chicken coop, donated 100 baby chicks and stationery.

‘Amashika and Friends’ clean up Wag Water River

Newly inducted member of the Rotaract Club of Kingston, Amashika Lorne, organised a clean up of the Wag Water River for her birthday with friends. She had 42 volunteers, including 2 who were disabled.

55 garbage bags and other huge items like tyres, pieces of furniture, buckets, refrigerators etc. were collected.

Amashika’s commendable act did not stop there. After the clean up, a Presentation on Environmental Awareness was conducted by Patrice Gilpin of NEPA and herself to residents of the Boone Hall Oasis Community. Amashika also thanked Boone Hall Oasis, NEPA, Nestle Jamaica, Ribbiz Ultra Lounge, Respect Jamaica, Rotaract Club of Kingston, her family and friends for their Assistance and a very special birthday.

Great job Amashika and friends for doing their part in the campaign, ‘Nuh Dutty Up Jamaica’.
