Send a Poor Child to High School in Jamaica



The Caribbean Education Foundation (CEF) helps poor children gain meaningful access to quality education in Jamaica and remaining Caribbean. Public High Schools ARE NOT FREE in Jamaica! CEF awards Scholarships to brilliant children in financial need so they can attend high school. Our Paul Bogle Scholarships pays school fees, text books, school supplies, transportation and lunch. Student Scholarships are renewable each year if the criteria are met of good grades and regular attendance.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS ARE NOT FREE IN JAMAICA. Every day thousands of children are on the streets instead of attending school. On the surface, it may appear that these 11 and 12-year old children do not wish to attend school, but that is farthest from the truth. Many of the children are brilliant and passed their exams, but are unable to attend public high schools, because destitute families cannot afford school costs. It costs $1,500 U.S. to send 1 child to public high school.

How will this project solve this problem?

Your donation helps CEF to provide academic scholarships to 25 children. CEF provides meaningful access to public education to thousands of brilliant, poor children. Our Paul Bogle Scholarships fund each child for the entire school year. It pays their text books, school supplies, uniforms, transportation and lunch. The scholarships are renewable each year, if the students maintain the required criteria: good grades, at least a B average; daily attendance and good moral character.

Potential Long Term Impact

CEF's goal is to take action to empower children with quality education and enable youth to help themselves. This will in turn break the poverty cycle and give our youth meaningful choices and opportunities in this world.
