Space for Learning Center - Narrowing Down Options

As you know, Caribbean Education Foundation has been working on locating a suitable space for the CEF Learning & Technology Center in Kingston.  We have intensified the task, since CEF has added a number of additional Paul Bogle Scholarship recipients to our roster of students who need our assistance with technology and a great space for homework!  We should finalized a suitable space location in the next couple of months.

CEF is counting on your financial assistance to get the space sooner than later, so that we can start helping children succeed in supplemental learning and technology.  Please make a donation to the Learning Center Project today!

Thank you for your generosity.

Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the New Year!
