Under the National Labour day theme of “Lend a Hand... Build our Land”,  Generation 2000, the young professional affiliate of the Jamaica Labour Party embarked on Labour day projects across the length and breadth of Jamaica yesterday.

“We undertook a total of 10 projects across Jamaica with the majority of them focusing on Basic and Primary schools in an attempt to help enhance the learning environments of the nation’s children. We believe that it is important that our members through our projects stay true to our motto of more than just politics” said President of Generation 2000, Floyd Green

Projects ranged from the removal of debris from storm water drains in Hopewell Hanover to the painting of the Market in Stony Hill. St. Andrew and included the planting of trees and painting of the Community Center in Seville Heights in St. Ann.

The Schools which benefited from the organization’s work on Labour Day include the Hamilton Gardens Basic School in Portmore St. Catherine, where members of the organization painted the bathroom and Classrooms; the Trinity Basic School in Retreat, St. Mary where doors and windows were installed and the Mount Salem primary and Junior High where classrooms were painted.

The organization’s biggest project on the day was the continued upgrade of the Yadel Home for Girls located in Bannister, St. Catherine, which houses 30 wards of the state. Spearhead by the St, Catherine Chapter, the organization tiled the Verandah and living room of the home, painted the exterior of the building and planted trees.

General Secretary of G2K, Lionel Myrie who was on hand at Yadel, applauded the work of the team, “This is the continuation of a relationship that started in December last year when we adopted the institution and the chapter refurbished the Kitchen for the girls here.  We believe that it is critical that we not only highlight the difficulties that our Children often face in State Care but that we do something about it.”

Mrs. Karen Mignot-Dixon, Manager of the Home of Yadel expressed sincere appreciation for the work being done by the organization “We really appreciate everything that G2K has done because they have really been there for us; it is not a group that did something for something sake, they came to us without an invitation, found out our needs and worked on fulfilling these needs”
