Giving Back to Our Community

 

Walkerswood Youth Foundation – A 501(c)3 Non-profit Organization started by the Rutty Family of Trans Caribe for all citizens of Walkerswood, St. Ann School District

The Rutty family left Jamaica for the United States in July 1979.  Even though we are thousands of miles from home, our community was not forgotten.  During our visits back to Jamaica, we saw the need to help the community of Walkers Wood.  Providing a higher standard of education to the youths in the community was where we determined that change can be impacted.  Over the past years, we have donated books, computer, desks, and kitchen equipment to the community.  In the midst of making personal donations, we started Walkers Wood Youth Foundation (http://walkerswoodyouthfoundation.org) as an organized initiative to impact change.  We are also in the process of donating an entire 40-foot container with computers, books, desks, kitchen appliances, toys, etc. for the Primary and Basic schools in Walkers Wood.  Our mission is to provide the necessary resources and provisions for the youth to help them succeed and to capture the hearts of the right organizations and sponsors who will donate to help our cause.
