  • Title: Jamaica Environment Trust - Building Appreciation for Nature In Children at Risk
    Descriptive info: Building Appreciation for Nature In Children at Risk.. The Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) and RISE Life Management Services have joined forces to embark on a programme to expose children living in Kingston to experiences in nature.. Funded by the Environmental Foundation of Jamaica, ‘Building Appreciation for Nature in Children at Risk’ was launched in October 2010 and is geared toward enhancing awareness of and appreciation for nature in children living in urban environments.. JET delivered environmentally themed workshops to 120 participants in the RISE Kidz Club’s after school programme in three downtown Kingston communities: Parade Gardens, Fletcher’s Land and Allman Town.. Children ranging from 9 – 14 years participated in the workshops were taken on field trips to expose them to Jamaica’s natural environment.. Youth Development Officers (YDO's) who work with the Kidz Club participants on a daily basis were also trained in environmental topics to ensure sustainability of the programme.. Kids from Parade Gardens on a field trip to Holywell (Photographer: Adrian Creary).. RISE Life Management, established in 1990 as Addiction Alert, shifted its focus in 2005 to address the needs of vulnerable populations in Jamaica, particularly at-risk adolescents living in inner city communities.. “This project with JET is a tremendous opportunity for  ...   trip on October 23 to the Hollywell Recreational area in the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park.. “Hollywell was fun and a cool area, I enjoyed the journey” said nine year old Shadimond Francis, who is one of the programme’s participants, “we walked from Hollywell to Portland!”.. An open day was hosted in May 2011 to celebrate the completion of the first phase of the project.. The event was also used to showcase the artwork and other activities done during the course of the programme for donors, special guests and other stakeholders.. After the successful completion of the first phase of the BANCAR project, it was agreed by both JET and RISE that it would be desirable to replicate the project in more communities in which RISE operates their Kidz Club after school programme: Majesty Gardens, Tower Hill and Drewsland.. Phase II was accordingly launched in October 2011 and 145 children participated in the programme.. In October 2012 a phase III was launched with additional funding from Grace Kennedy Foundation.. Due to the nature of the funding we were only able to conduct workshops and field trips with 40 children in the Parade Gardens community.. JET is currently seeking funding to continue this project..
