Jamaica Environment Trust’s Bittersweet 20th Anniversary for Schools’ Environment Programme

Primary tabs

After twenty years of the Schools Environment Programme (SEP), Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) has to close the programme down as funding from the Natural Resources Conservation Authority (NRCA) has been withdrawn. I had already shared some information in a previous post about the financial challenges JET has been facing, and their needs in order to sustain and maximize their programmes. The programme faces closure in the next academic year, starting September. Kudos to CIBC First Caribbean Bank and Total Jamaica for their faithful support for SEP. Let us have more private sector support for this critical programme!
