On August 23rd the ‘Raise Me Up’ Organization began a new construction project at the New Horizon Seventh Day Adventist School. ‘Raise Me Up’ is a non- profit organization working to eliminate inadequate living conditions by fulfilling basic needs and raising awareness in communities. The new project will see the construction of an Education Center that will include a literacy program, library, computer room, and a mass media program. Focused on the education of the children on the island, the project is financed by donations made to “Raise Me Up.”

Barkhouse indicated that this project will be beneficial to the entire community of San Pedro, by increasing the literacy of students, as well as to provide an educational space for children to compete assignments. “A big thank you to all those people and association that are helping us in the construction of this education center, especially to Blue Water Grill, Red Ginger, and Wine de Vine, who are the ones that matched our donations. We also thank our professional photographer Erica Barker, and Mr. Chi the principal of New Horizon, because without his approval, this project wouldn’t have happened.”
