Ayako Turnbull is a special lady, and I mean to the people of Riverton City, a inner city community in the city of Kingston, Jamaica. What makes her special is her dedication to changing the lives of people in this community-in a positive way.
Through her organization, FUNdamentals for Change, the community of Riverton City, known more for its status as the city’s dump, have a positive outlet to explore their potential in a positive and uplifting way.
Turnbull, now in her early 30’s, first visited Jamaica when she was 16 and fell in love with the people of Riverton City. Each year, Turnbull who lives in Canada, travel to Jamaica with volunteers, to work on projects under the FUNdamentals for Change umbrella.
Here is Ayako in an interview with Jamaican television show, Caring Hands, talking about the work that Fundamentals for Change does in the Kingston community of Riverton City.[embedplusvideo height=”429″ width=”710″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/1TQH4x6″ standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/7VL1MhP5dRU?fs=1&vq=hd720″ vars=”ytid=7VL1MhP5dRU&width=710&height=429&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=1&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=¬es=” id=”ep4520″ /]
