The Haile Selassie High School was opened on September 9, 1969 as a gift from H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, subsequent to his visit to Jamaica in 1966.   The school is located in the inner city and has been doing very well to produce model students despite that their families often experience health and food instability. The foundation conducts and annual health fair as part of the wellness effort. Our main partner for this project is  Rastafari TV which has been working closely to provide support to the school and the surrounding community.  This effort will benefit students, teachers  and members of the community. The foundation  conducts the fair  each January during our  Mission for Change” and provides health, dental, wellness screenings and consultations.
