Year 1 Program J.A.M.I.N. Student Voice 2017-18 Daniesia Eccleston


My favorite part of the J.A.M.I.N. program is when I actually got to visit the site where some of Jamaica’s beautiful mangroves are. I believe seeing them in person helped me to learn a lot.”   – Daniesia Eccleston, William Knibb High School


 J.A.M.I.N. Student Voice 2017-18 Jada Jackson


I’d like to say how grateful I am to be in this program. I am not longer ignorant about mangroves. I know their purpose, importance, and how lucky I am to have them. Without this project, I wouldn’t even know what these trees are nor, would I care for them.”   – Jada Jackson, William Knibb High School

Thank you for coming to William Knibb Memorial High School and giving us this wonderful experience. I didn’t know about mangroves until you and now I appreciate them, and I’ll continue to share this information with my family members.”   – Shadena Francis, William Knibb High School
