Jain Youth and Sheyes of Miami
At 9am on 12 July 2021, students from the Jain Center of South Florida (JCSF) with parents visited Sheyes of Miami #4, which serves both Brownsville and Liberty City in Miami. Mr. Altermont Walker, Administrator at Sheyes, and his teachers provide a high-quality education for children in this historically African American neighborhood in Miami.
Today’s event was a collaboration among FIU Jain Studies, the Jain Center of South Florida, and The East West Foundation with Sheyes to enhance their education through hands-on environmental education and STEM kits. Four classes of students at Sheyes joined the volunteers from JCSF (three parents, 7 students, and 2 Jain teachers), Dr. Zafreen Jaffery from Behavioral Science Research Institute, and Albert Knoepffler from Palmer Trinity to plant 9 fruit and shade trees, more than 30 food and ornamental plants at the school in between rain showers. While the students were planting, they were engaged in active learning the skills of planting, maintaining plants, and the role of the plant world for our food and climate.Read More...
