Why Serena Williams Went to Jamaica


Tennis superstar Serena Williams recently completed a high-profile visit to Jamaica — but it wasn’t for sun, sand and sea.

The world’s number one-ranked player headed with her team to Ocho Rios to help build a school in the area of Salt Marsh through the Serena Williams Fund.


The Salt Marsh Infant School is the third school built by her fund, this time in partnership with Helping Hands Jamaica.

During her time on the island, Williams and her team stayed at a large villa in Ocho Rios donated by John Bailey (above).
