Hi, I am Zohaib, I am 9 years old, and I traveled to Jamaica in February 2022.
On my trip to Jamaica, I was able to bring two suitcases full of needed supplies for the Barrett School in Montego Bay.
I chose to focus on bringing art supplies such as crayons, markers, colored pencils, coloring books, paints, paint brushes, and palette trays. I also collected a suitcase full of elementary age books so students can enjoy new books. Lastly, I bought learning and strategy games that the students requested such as scrabble, uno, chess, parcheesi, tic-tac-toe, a sports science kit and jigsaw puzzles.
For the school teachers, I brought some of my care kits filled with PPE and first aid supplies such as bandages and antibiotic ointments.
It was a great experience to go to the school and meet all the students. It was much different than my school back home.
