Today the students met with Susan Goffe, who plays a major role at Jamaicans for Justice, a human rights advocacy group. Susan told the students numerous personal stories of individual human rights violations, as well as Jamaicans for Justice’s advocacy for policy changes that effect everyone’s human rights. At the end of the presentation, Susan was presented with a check on behalf of the Manchester University Men’s Soccer team to help with their ongoing work.

In the afternoon we headed up into the Blue Mountains to visit the Old Tavern Coffee Estate coffee farm, where David Twyman, a local coffee grower, gave a tour detailing how coffee is farmed by hand.
