Since 2010, we have supported projects in Mexico, Ghana & Jamaica. For the last decade, we have been supporting schools in the poorest parish in Jamaica. As a former Peace Corps volunteer in Jamaica in the 80's, visiting & volunteering every other year when feasible since then & writing my doctoral dissertation on the education system, 2x4 Int'l has a trusted history and knowledge of the dire needs of the community. Overwhelmingly, our Board of Directors (http://2x4international.blogspot.com/p/who-we-are.html) support our current focus on helping to fix downtrodden schools and weak performing schools.
