Projects Implemented Under an MOU with the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF)
The partnership between the Fund and JSIF is facilitated through a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2011. Through this partnership, a Schools Sanitation Project was implemented which has to date benefited some 3,287 students from 28 schools across the island. The project provided for new sanitation blocks equipped with septic tanks, toilets, urinals and ramps to facilitate access by physically challenged persons. These facilities replaced pit latrines which long existed at the schools.
Additionally, 100 communal sanitary conveniences and showers in several inner-city communities in Kingston and St. Andrew, were built at a cost of J$200 million. These communities include: Denham Town, Tivoli Gardens, Hannah Town, Jones Town, Rose Town, and several communities in Central Kingston.
