The long planned “Herbal Pharmacy” Mural eventually came to life with the help of Emily - a professional muralist from Atlanta. With the assistance from our other volunteers coming from Germany., Denmark and Jamaica, the work was easy going and fun. We even had time to work together in preparing the garden. We had a lovely vibes and great time together .
Alessia is with us again! As an experienced and awarded drama writer and teacher, Alessia is bringing her amazing workshops from Rome, Italy to the little island of Jamaica. We are honored to host her and she say these are some of the most talented and spontaneous people she has ever met!
We've just successfully accomplished our 9-Week Skills Training. It was amazing to see how the inner-artist in all the participants came to life . During the skills training program, we learned how to turn waste into beautiful and marketable items and much more! We had loads of fun, every Monday to Thursday from 9 am until 3:30pm and often times, needed to be reminded a few times daily to pause our creativity for lunch break or when its time to wrap up in the evening. We had visitors who already wanted to buy our first show-pieces and got orders for masks, earrings, bracelets, sculptures and bowls. What are we going to do with our new skill? We will soon announce our open-studio days! If you want to become as passionate and learn about all that we can create, you can join our upcoming social for small-scale enterprise.
We are also preparing to host volunteers again to take care of babies and toddlers. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the mothers of small ones to join us!!!
Dressing up and disguising oneself and one another has always been the greatest fun for the BBCC children! Our volunteers worked up a sweat getting the backstage area prepared.
Passionate Drama Teachers are most welcome!
We all love our new spacious and neat kitchen for our very attractive Cooking and Baking Classes.
Teamwork makes the dream work and our Super Team of local and international Volunteers really got to work in restoring this broken down building into a modern, artistic and inviting kitchen! This was seriously a lot of work and took some days of painting, cleaning, making cabinets and shelves with our hands. But in the end it was all worth it, to see the smile on the children's faces and have a clean and open space to learn and prepare healthy, delicious cuisines!
These lawns don't cut themselves and when it's time to clean up, we all volunteer and chip in to our part in keeping our environment clean! This monthly cleaning of the outside grassy areas around the community gives the children and community a chance to learn how to do manual labour, how to operate a weedwacker, learning teamwork and not to mention taking pride in the neatness of one's community not just indoors but outside!
It waS a very exiting and playful event for everyone. We expecting more entries before we can elected and pronounced the winners
