Every year we honor the memory of our angel Caveri Marley, our founder's daughter who transitioned to heaven in June 2019 after battling a very rare brain tumor for 9 months. She was 11 years old. She was a spirit of light and love and her kindness towards others was so admirable. She was an integral part of every LOVE U Camp and loved going to Jamaica every summer to do good. After Caveri transitioned, our founder decided to honor her memory by raising funds in her birthday month to give back to a school in Jamaica every year. Each year we pick a different school in St. Ann, Jamaica that needs help to make necessary upgrades for the school and children. This year we chose Liberty Valley Basic School in St. Ann, Jamaica. This school is a preschool with children ages 3-5 years old with many children who attend our LOVE U Camp. It is located in the countryside off of a main road that is used frequently by taxis and drivers. The principal Mrs. Angella Campbell-Hemmings, expressed to our team that the school is in need of a perimeter wall to provide safety for the children and staff as many drivers pass the school daily and drive close to the school. She explained that the wall would also minimize the vandalism and theft they experience due to the public walking through the grounds. The cost to build this wall is $320,611.53 JMD, roughly $2,290 USD.
Mrs. Campbell- Hemmings also shared that the 5 year old class and two teachers are in much need of tablets so they can successfully complete their daily assignments and lessons. There are 10 students in this class and the cost for 1 tablet is $18,000 JMD. The total cost for the tablets would be $216,000 JMD, $1,550 USD. During this difficult time of Covid, virtual learning is essential for children to be given the building blocks for a strong and successful education especially in Jamaica where free Wi-Fi is not so readily available. More importantly, students are being left behind academically because they do not have a device to join class. Join in and share your love this holiday season to honor Caveri's memory by helping this school and the children who attend.
