Other Projects

Two other facilities received project assistance from WIGUT during its 50th Anniversary year.

  • A donation of J$25,000 was made to the Ardenne High School towards the construction of a new Science Block.
  • The union also assisted the Writing Centre in the Department of Language, Linguistics and Philosophy, Faculty of Humanities, Mona, with J$41,200 to purchase handbooks and a two-volume dictionary. The Writing Centre assists students at the Mona Campus in developing their writing skills.

WIGUT has made contributions to various organizations before as part of its outreach project, among them the Jamaica Red Cross Society, and the Health Centre at the Mona campus. In the wake of the devastating earthquake in Haiti the union donated US$5,000 to the Red Cross in support of their work there.
