A Fundraiser for Project ROAR
Project ROAR: Calgary ReggaeFest’s school and community outreach project is called Project ROAR (Reach Out And Restore). ReggaeFest has adopted the Windsor Forest Primary School in Portland, Jamaica and has helped to develop a Resource Centre. The Resource Centre is used by the school as well as the entire Windsor Forest community.
Please help us to raise the funds needed to continue helping with the Resource Centre.
