[edit] Description of Service

I don't have an electronic version of my DOS, so have pasted in some stuff from my last quarterly report

Goal 1: Communities will improve their environmental sanitation practices. Describe activities: Describe outcomes (changes in knowledge, attitude, skills, or behavior as a result of the activities):

Developed an educational video on the subject of maintaining clean water resources, “Jamaica’s Water Resources… Underground.” This video was done with collaboration from 2 NGOs and 1 GO. The video is intended for general public distribution, as well as use by GOs and Peace Corps.

Presented a Powerpoint presentation related to water resources at the Montego Bay Marine Park’s monthly educational forum. This presentation was done in collaboration with PCV Michael Loftin (ENV). It is hoped that attention of the public, GOs and NGOs will be focused on some of the issues within the video, relating to water resources.


Goal 3: Stakeholders (especially NGOs, GOs and CBOs) will increase their knowledge of and adopt sustainable environmental sanitation interventions.

Objective 1: Will help develop and pilot 60 sustainable environmental sanitation interventions. Stakeholders will introduce 12 sustainable environmental sanitation interventions into Jamaican communities.

Obtained bids from contractors to construct a truck washing and materials recovery area for the Retirement Waste Disposal Site, near Montego Bay.

Obtained bids from contractors to construct a composting area for the Retirement Waste Disposal Site, near Montego Bay.

Secondary and Community Project Activities not reported above

Started some materials recovery work at the dumpsite, linked up sorters with buyers of furniture. 8 office chairs were sold, and the profits were realized by the sorters who recovered them. Hopefully this will continue.


Transitioned my trade of US/Can/Euro coins for Jamaican dollars operation at the dump site to a middle man. Leaving this project in the hands of a middle man who operates at the site and is trusted by the sorters should help make it sustainable. Unfortunately it also depends on the middle man making contact with PCVs, and he hasn't yet.


Provide direction, post-production and logistical support for educational video productions sponsored by 2 NGOs, principally the Montego Bay Marine Park, with PCV Michael Loftin (ENV).

I assisted in the writing and editing of a proposal for the Montego Bay Marine Park. There was a serious deadline on this proposal and without my help the proposal would not have gotten to the funding agency on time.


I assisted the executive director of the Montego Bay Marine Park with editing and choosing content for a Power Point presentation that was presented at a public forum.

I did research into costs and sources of equipment, to be requisitioned overseas by the Montego Bay Marine Park. The staff of the Montego Bay Marine Park could not be relied upon to get this done in a timely manner, so I was asked to do it.

Presented a power point presentation on solid waste to the staff of Sandals, Montego Bay.


Assisted the operators of the Sandals, Montego Bay glass bottom boat tour in improving their tour. Informed them of environmental issues related to pollution, solid waste, etc. The staff were informed about some of the environmental issues so that they can educate guests and fellow staff members.
