Santa Cruz, St Elizabeth – Parish manager of the St Elizabeth 4-H movement Keisha Johnson is expressing satisfaction at the progress of 4-H clubs in the parish.

In a report e-mailed to the Jamaica Observer Central, Johnson said 7,532 members are registered in 106 clubs at five early childhood institutions, 75 primary schools, 14 high schools, one college, one church, and 10 community clubs.

The 4-H movement seeks to educate and train young people in agriculture and agro-industry, homemaking, leadership and social skills.

Johnson said that in 2017/18 five schools received inputs to assist with water harvesting to their gardens under UNDP Climate Change Smart Gardens Programme. The schools are Giddy Hall All-Age, Bethlehem All Age, Elderslie Primary & Infant, Pepper Primary and Goshen Primary.

Nine schools benefited under the ongoing Rabbit Revolving Programme.

They are Beersheba Primary, Marie Cole Memorial Primary, Parottee Primary, Warminster Primary, Goshen Primary, Carisbrook Primary, St Mary's Primary, Sydney Pagon STEM Academy, and Newell High School.
