I have adopted a disadvantaged student, Andre Bent in Jamaica to help him attend high school at Jamaica College Sept. 2013. Andre is 14 years and in Grade 8 at JC. Andre says he knows he has to persevere despite difficult circumstances. He did well on the GSAT, including 87% in Science and 85% in Math. Andre lives in the inner-city “ghetto” area of Jones Town in Kingston. With both parents looking for jobs, they have been unable to provide all of Andre's academic needs to attend high school.
