ABOUT THIS PROJECT

A project of Liberty Hall, the Garvey Multimedia Computer Centre was established in 2004 from funds donated by the National Housing Trust and the Friends of Liberty Hall.  Since then the computers have been regularly serviced, however, given the pace of technological advancement, the computers have become virtually obsolete.  Four out of the nine computers are no longer operable and require replacement, and the dedicated laser printer also purchased in 2004 is no longer working.  Refurbishing the computer centre requires replacing the computers with the HP Multi Seat Computing Solution that links six monitors with one CPU; and acquisition of a laser printer dedicated to the Computer Centre.

HOW YOUR DONATION WILL HELP

Donations will go towards retooling of the Computer Centre which will increase the efficiency of the Adult Computer Classes allowing teachers to maximize the time spent navigating students through learning the programmes and reduce the student’s frustration caused by the slowness of the machines.  Students will also be able to print their work from their stations.

ABOUT GARVEY’S LIBERTY HALL

Located in Kingston, Jamaica, the Garvey Multimedia Computer Centre serves the needs of adults and children from surrounding downtown inner-city communities and beyond (Greater Portmore, Spanish Town, Bull Bay, Gordon Town, Golden Spring).  The centre offers a number of courses, including an 18-Week Computer Literacy Programme, which gives adults the opportunity to learn computing for a very low fee of J$300.00 per class.  Through this programme hundreds of adults have been trained in computer skills and there is an increased demand for advanced classes, classes on evenings and weekends, as well as classes that are certified by HEART.  The latter are being explored and discussions can only be strengthened with the introduction of new computers.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

This project is about working with at-risk youth (ages 10-24) in an effort to improve their life opportunities. Specifically, it provides remedial literacy and numeracy education to street and working children with the aim of reinstating (those of school age) into the formal school system. Those in their late teens are trained in vocational activities such as barbering, cosmetology ,information technology, and videography.  Participants are enrolled in a specially tailored remedial non-formal education programme from Monday-Thursday where they are exposed to an extensive curriculum around reading, writing, and mathematics.  Participants also engage in life skills courses on topics such as career development; conflict resolution; reproductive health; and personal hygiene.   

HOW YOUR DONATION WILL HELP

At a cost of US390 per year per child, your donation will go towards placing 10 young people for one year in the programme, and help to increase their chances for a healthy, happy life. If we don’t intervene now, these young people will become part of the dark underworld and we would have failed them.
