On our recent travels to Jamaica while meeting with resort management, we were told about an elementary school near by named Mango Hall Primary. Each student takes personal pride in their appearance; shirts and slacks ironed, colors are vibrant and uniforms are spotless. Unfortunately, the school is without electricity which means no lighting or air conditioning.

Jamaica has been extremely generous to The Black Tape Project that it is only right that we give back to Jamaica.


Our Mission

Our mission is to provide Mango Hall Primary with electricity for their students. Instead of just writing a check that will only last for a short duration of time we want to provide them with an unlimited and sustainable power source. We are proposing to install solar power panels at the school that will provide a sustainable energy source for their electricity. Our immediate goal at this point is to get the school compliant with building codes and connecting them directly to the city power grid.

The Black Tape Project is adopting Mango Hall Primary to ensure its longevity and aid in the comfort of the children and staff by providing them with a comfortable and accommodating learning facility.


Our intention is to donate a portion of proceeds once a year from our Paradise Challenge Open in September 2018 directly to Mango Hall Primary. We are also collecting new and gently used clothing for the students as well as parents who have been having difficulty buying clothing. This is our chance, not only as individuals but as a collective group to make a difference in the lives of others. This will truly be a challenge for ALL of us who accept it. 

Your Help

We understand that some of you might be interested in giving a donation so we have created a direct, dedicated donation option below. Any size denomination is welcomed and we thank you very much for your generosity.

The Black Tape Project is confident that with your support we can make a lasting improvement to this school by creating a sustainable, safe and healthy place for the education of these children.


Thank you for reading and for your support. If you are part of #TeamMangoHall, please share this message to raise awareness and hope for this cause.
