Serena Williams builds school in Jamaica

American Tennis champion Serena Williams is vacationing in Jamaica and for her it is a mixture of business and pleasure.

While she soaks up the sunshine and enjoys the beaches she also took time out to share her time and resources with the people.

Williams who is vacationing at a $20,000-a-week beachfront luxury villa near Ocho Rios on Jamaica’s north coast, took time out to give back to the island.

Williams showed real heart as she not only ensured her Serena Williams Fund partnered with Helping Hands Jamaica to help build the Salt Marsh Primary School in Usain Bolt’s parish of Trelawny, Jamaica.

Williams commandeered the help of Bolt’s fellow training partners Warren Weir and Yohan Blake as well as entertainer Toots from Toots and the Maytals.

“Enjoyablework. Serena Williams Fund’s 3rd school- this time we partnered with Helping Hands Jamaica to build the Salt Marsh Primary School,” Williams posted on Instagram.

The school was established in 1953 on a property known as Dundee Pen, located four miles from Falmouth. Most of the students attending the school are from the surrounding communities, with others travelling daily from as far as Montego Bay in St. James. Williams posted a video and pictures to social media showing her painting and doing actual work to help update the school.
