Founded in 2007, The Chukka Foundation has always been dedicated to improving the communities we serve; we especially believe that education is the cornerstone to building bright futures. The Foundation recently provided twelve local infant and primary schools in our communities across the island with back to school supplies.
The Foundation recognized the need to help children successfully start their academic year with the supplies they need, and ease the stress and financial burden for families and teachers alike.
Schools varied in size depending on the communities, some as small as 80 children and others having as many as 400 students.
Chukka Caribbean Adventures in Jamaica offers attractions in Negril (Mayfield Falls and Sandy Bay), Montego Bay (Lethe and Montpelier), Falmouth (Good Hope) and Ocho Rios (Llandovery, Dunns River Falls and White River Valley). In all, The Foundation were able to assist the needs of the schools by providing pens, pencils, rulers, sharpeners, crayons, modeling clay, glue, paints, composition books and many more essential items.
Neveast Supplies Ltd partnered with the Foundation to address the local needs by assisting with donations of school supplies. In addition, Falmouth Jamaica Land Co donated small cabin fridges to each of the twelve schools from the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line ships.
The support was well received, and the community partnerships made an immediate impact as schools successfully started their 2018-2019 academic year!
