The Kind Hearts Foundation team and Food For the Poor cut the ribbon at the hand-over ceremony of the Crawford Primary School’s new Infant Department. In June, Kind Hearts Foundation built two schools as part of its Basic School Building Initiative. Kind Hearts Foundation, a philanthropic organisation run by young adults, was founded in 2010 as a branch of the Richard and Diana Stewart Foundation and the Stewart’s Automotive Group. The foundation has made history as the first Food For the Poor donors to build back-to-back basic schools in Jamaica, having successfully constructed six basic schools across the island, The two schools, built in Windsor Castle, Portland, and Crawford District, St Elizabeth, are six-unit structures, consisting of three classrooms with sufficient space for 60 students, Early Childhood Commission-approved furniture, a principal’s office, a sick bay, a fully-equipped kitchen, safe bathroom facilities, playground equipment, fencing and a water-harvesting component for domestic purposes.
