OUR MISSION

The Rockhouse Foundation is dedicated to transforming the places where Jamaica’s children learn and supporting the great people who teach them, directly impacting the lives of thousands of young people and their families. Since its inception in 2004, the Foundation has invested over US $6 million building, expanding and renovating seven Negril area public schools and the Negril Community Library. All administrative and marketing costs of the foundation are underwritten by Rockhouse Hotel, Skylark Negril Beach Resort, Miss Lily’s and their owners, meaning all donations go directly to the projects and programs.

The Rockhouse Foundation directly impacts the lives of thousands of young people and their families in western Jamaica.

OUR WORK

The Foundation has transformed and modernized seven schools throughout Western Jamaica: Moreland Hill Primary and Infant Schools, Negril All Age School, Negril Basic School, Little Bay All Age and Infant Schools, Bunch of Stars Early Childhood Institute, Sir Clifford Campbell School and Savanna-la-Mar Inclusive Infant Academy (Sav Inclusive), in addition to the complete renovation and expansion of the Negril Community Library. During the COVID pandemic the Foundation has been making weekly food distributions, delivering over 100 tons of food and sustaining over 1000 people weekly, by far Jamaica’s most expansive and sustained intitiative.
