We hope you had a wonderful Summer! It is that time of year again and Caribbean Education Foundation Paul Bogle Scholarship recipients are going back to high schools throughout Jamaica, due to the generosity of donors like you; and our Education Ambassadors who have adopted a student! Our work would not be possible without your continued support. We are extremely grateful!
HOW DID CEF SCHOLARS PERFORM IN THE PAST YEAR?
The overwhelming majority of CEF Scholars continue to do excellent work in school! 14 out of 18 students excelled with “A Grades” and made the Honor Roll. 11 have "A" Grade Point Averages: Dania, Trevisa, Sarah, Janneil, Daniellia, Shamarie, Tamia, Janet, Savena, Nicole, Ashauni. 3 have "B+" Grade Point Averages; and 4 are struggling and need additional assistance. We have a couple students in especially difficult circumstances at home; and additionally, lack access to technology and homework assistance, which reflects in some of their grades. In order to provide students with additional support, CEF is creating a Learning & Technology Center!
SCHOLARSHIP RENEWALS: BACK TO SCHOOL CAMPAIGN!
As you know, Caribbean Education Foundation (CEF) renews scholarships for students who are still in financial need, attended high school regularly and maintained good grades. This month, CEF provided 10 student scholarships!
High School started on September 2nd in Jamaica and unfortunately, many of our brilliant scholarship students are unable to attend due to a lack of funds! Many don't have bus fare, text books or school supplies! Danielle says, "I don't worry so much that I don't have any lunch, as long as I have the bus fare to get to school and text books to learn the lessons and do my homework. This is all I ask for." She is 12 years old.
Although students qualify for scholarship renewals, sadly, CEF has not been able to renew all scholarships as yet, due to a lack of funds. We need your help to assist the additional children to attend high school!
Our Back to School Campaign is to raise funds to send 25 children to high school. As discussed 10 children already received scholarships. We need your help for assist the remaining 15 children. Please make a contribution and help us make high school happen for these brilliant children!
As you know, Public High Schools are NOT FREE in Jamaica. Our Paul Bogle Scholarships students' pay school fees, textbooks, school supplies, transportation and lunch. CEF is a registered U.S. based 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization and all contributions are 100% tax deductible.
