The Adele School
The Adele School for Special Children caters to students who are faced with cognitive, physical and/or emotional challenges. Over the years, the Jumby Bay Fund has shown its support through ongoing structural and environmental enhancements including the addition of new classrooms, various interior renovations and external improvements such as fencing, landscaping, a new basketball court and a refurbished play area.
Playing to inspire
The Jumby Bay Fund is proud to have been the main annual sponsor of “Playing to Inspire” and the Kanneh-Mason family who have made it such a success. It is an annual programme of musical excellence for young and aspiring musicians in Antigua and Barbuda out of which the Antigua & Barbuda Youth Symphony Orchestra was born.
Art in Local Schools
The amazing work of Antiguan artists is promoted on Jumby Bay Island through various programs. Proceeds help to provide local schools with supplies and art media.
Boys Training School
The government-operated Boys Training School is a rehabilitation-focused residential detention center for juvenile offenders that also houses young boys who are in need of supervision and protection. To encourage the development of life skills, the Jumby Bay Fund converted an old mill into a computer center and purchased woodworking tools for classroom workshops.
In the face of current school systems eliminating recess, and children spending more and more time in front of computer screens, the Community Adventure Play Experience (CAPE) offers the chance for children to rediscover the “basics of play” as a way to develop initiative, collaborate, and problem-solve using recycled materials in their own communities. Arising out of the Westchester based Children’s development institute, the CAPE Project comes to Antigua’s own Island Academy in the hopes of bringing children together through play to inspire the children of Antigua and Barbuda.
