Kingston, Jamaica – 17 January 2020: The Banks of the Hope Foundation which was founded by Jeffrey Campbell, better known as Agent Sasco, will be making extraordinary improvements to the way climate change is managed in the Kintyre District of St Andrew. The initiative, which includes a rain water catchment system for the Kintyre Community Centre will be funded by the Digicel Foundation as a part of a grant programme with The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme, which supports exceptional young people from across the Commonwealth.
In addition to supporting the Kintyre Community Centre, Agent Sasco will also be lending a musical hand to the Hope Valley Experimental School to establish a social enterprise centred around music. The Music Enterprise Programme will benefit students interested in the creative arts by providing access to a music room, while also creating a source of income for the school through rentals for concerts.
Chairperson of the Digicel Foundation, Jean Lowrie-Chin, and newly appointed board director, Danielle Stiebel-Johnson, signed an agreement with Agent Sasco to provide grant funding for the rainwater catchment system and retrofitting of the music room.
