3 Rivers & Rosalie Forest Eco Lodge works in collaboration with Pack for a Purpose to assist the Grand Fond Primary School.

Mrs.Leslie at Grand Fond has created an ingenious rewards program, where each donated item is given a points value, and the pupils earn points through work and good behavior and can choose their gifts according to their number of points they have accumulated. This teaches the children how to budget and the value of goods, even gifts!
