Global Learning in Jamaica: Service and Culture Summer 2008
Indiana University students will again depart for Jamaica in mid-July to culturally immerse themselves through service in a small fishing village in southwestern Jamaica. The students coordinate and teach at a youth day camp for 7-12 year olds, live with local families, and gain a global education from within the specifics of Jamaican culture.
The day camp needs a number of items for its programs, and we are thus requesting donations of the following items. If you are interested in making a donation, please contact Hilary E. Kahn ([email protected]). You will be provided with the location of two potential drop-off spots (@ IUPUI and at IUB) or we will arrange a pick-up of your donations if necessary. We must receive the materials by July 7, or sooner. Our only limitation is that we have to carry these materials with us; thus lightweight and compact materials are preferred. We also prefer new supplies, though slightly used items that are in good shape would also be welcomed.
- Arts and Crafts Supplies of all types: examples include dyed feathers, beads, jewelry-making material, glue, paint kits and paint brushes, magic markers, construction paper, color foam paper and cut-outs, plastic masks for decorating, foam visors, crayons, stencils, clear and masking tape, pencils, balloons, colored pipe cleaners, etc.
- Athletic Equipment: balls that can be deflated (kickballs, volleyballs, soccer balls, etc.), frisbees, jump ropes, storage bags/nets for the equipment, etc.
- Prizes, school supplies, and other necessities: examples include stickers, pens, toothbrushes, toothpaste, small notepads, soap, holders/bags for pens and pencils, rulers, erasers, children scissors, glue sticks, band aids, t-shirts, first aid kits, etc.
