The Issa Trust Foundation, the non-profit organisation established by Couples Resorts in 2005, was awarded a US$15,000 grant by the American Friends of Jamaica last year, and the funds were used to provide a fully furnished, air-conditioned resource room, complete with four computers with Internet access, to the children of Free Hill Primary and Infant School.

The school, located in the rural district of Free Hill in St Mary, has a staff of 16 and caters to the social and educational needs of 450 students.

Members of the board of directors of the Issa Trust Foundation and the American Friends of Jamaica (AFJ) visited the school to make a presentation three weeks ago.
