Scores of staff volunteers at leading communications and entertainment provider, Flow Jamaica, removed a total of close to 100 bags of debris and plastic bottles from the Sirgany Beach in Kingston, New Causeway Fishing Village (Dyke Road) in St Catherine and The Meeting Place Fishing Village in St James, as part of the company’s Mission Week, observed November 15-19.
This was done in support of the Jamaica Environment Trust’s (JET) coastal clean-up drive.
Mission Week 2021 (#LLAMissionWeek2021) is an annual company-wide initiative where employees across Liberty Latin America (LLA) contribute their time, energy, and knowledge to positively impact the communities they serve.
This year, Flow Jamaica’s Mission Week activities supported the four LLA corporate social responsibility pillars of Learning, Environment, Access and Disaster Relief (L.E.A.D.).
Other partners for the calendar event included the Jamaica Teaching Council (JTC) and the Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) where the volunteers shared online classroom engagement strategies, including gamification, with primary school teachers, in daily sessions over the week.
More than 200 teachers participated in the sessions which were capped by a mental health webinar on Friday, November 19, led by Dr Joan Pinkney, Educator and Counselling Psychologist.
Also on Friday, Flow volunteers led by Stephen Price, vice president and general manager, handed over care packages to wards at the Sunbeam Boys’ Home in Old Harbour, St Catherine.
The remaining activities include free WiFi hotspot installations at Brimmer Vale High School in St Mary; Clark’s Town Primary School in Trelawny and Devon Primary School in Manchester.
