Nourish Mind, Body, and Soul with Friends and the One Love Learning Foundation in Montego Bay, Jamaica!

November 3 to 9, 2014

 

Friendship Force and our partner, the One Love Learning Foundation, would like to invite you on an incredibly unique exchange in Montego Bay, Jamaica! During this enlightening and fulfilling journey, you will get to experience firsthand the positive impact you can have on the life of a child growing up in poverty, all the while making new friends and exploring the beauty of this Caribbean destination. 

Working with the local One Love team and staying at the legendary island home of lyricist Oscar Hammersteinambassadors will work to plant a seedling nursery at the Highland House farm, a 7-acre organic garden that serves the youth of Jamaica. A few mornings and afternoons will be dedicated to the completion of the nursery and, when it is all done, the nursery will be dedicated to the Friendship Force! There will also be an opportunity to visit a local school that will be a recipient of the seeds for their own schoolyard garden, and your wonderful work will contribute to the positive growth of Jamaica's children, while promoting global peace. 

 

You will be working alongside your Rastafarian host, Mama Ita, who will teach you many Jamaican traditions. You will learn to weave walls from palm leaves and attend a party in the bush with Mama Ita's family, along with other members of the Rastafarian community where you will enjoy a traditional dinner and dancing. 

On your day of leisure, you will be able to pick from 5 exciting excursions that will better acquaint you with beautiful Jamaica. Select dinners at the Highland House will feature guest speakers who will provide you with insight and information on island culture and traditions. Your farewell dinner will be served pot-luck style with many donated local dishes and 'fresh-from-the-garden' produce. You will dine with your new friends on the One Love team to celebrate your accomplishment and be entertained by the One Love Tribe Drummers and Dancers!

We hope you join what is sure to be a very special exchange to this beautiful country known for their laid back lifestyle and giving spirit!

 

You will be accommodated in the Hammerstein Highland House, which serves as the base for One Love's Jamaican efforts. Built for Gladys Cooper and later purchased by Oscar Hammerstein II, this house is the picture of tropical paradise. Situated on a mountainside, the Hammerstein Highland House is settled in amidst lush vegetation including mango trees, papaya groves and wonderful gardens. You will be staying in beautiful, luxuruious rooms with stunning views of Montego Bay and there will be fresh Jamaican coffee and a full breakfast served each morning, as well as optional sunrise yoga for relaxation and spiritual focus.

The cost of this exchange is $1645 USD and includes 6 nights of hotel accommodations at the Hammerstein Highland House, airport transfers from airport, transportation during the entire program, 19 meals (7 breakfasts, 6 lunches, 6 dinners), a welcome lunch, a farewell dinner, a farewell brunch, gratuities for staff, the van and driver, and FFI fees.
