Did you know that May is Child’s Month?  The Caribbean Education Foundation (CEF) wishes a Happy Child’s Month to all children around the globe!  

CEF wishes that all mothers had a very Happy Mother’s Day! 

In addition, Happy Father’s Day when it comes to all dads in June!

Last month in April 2013, CEF’s President and Team members visited some of our CEF Scholars in Kingston, Jamaica.  As you know, CEF always receives our scholars' Grade Reports on how they are doing in school.  The detailed Grade Reports inform of us of not just their grades, but their overall attitude and behavior towards each subject matter (14 subjects) and their attendance record, including tardiness.  So, the CEF team learns a great deal from the Grade Reports!  However, there is nothing like a personal meeting to learn who a child really is.  It was truly wonderful to meet with the children in person! 

We met with some of our Kingston CEF Scholars at Emancipation Park in Kingston, Jamaica.  Our President had one-on-one sessions about academics, leadership roles and home life with each child.  As you can imagine, some things were very sad to hear about the difficulties and pains at home - - they are so young, at 12 to 14 years old and already experience so much in their young lives.  Despite their many challenges, our CEF Scholars persevere and stand tall.  We ask that you will continue to financially support our scholars who really need it most!

The overwhelming majority of scholars continue to do excellent in school!  We have a couple students in especially difficult circumstances at home and 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 to launch in September 2013!  The Learning Center will provide a safe, well-lit space for homework and research, exposure to computer technology, homework assistance, tutoring, mentoring and other services, so these children continue to rise and swim.  We ask that you support CEF's Learning Center initiative, which will not only help our current CEF Scholars, but reach thousands of additional disadvantaged children we have not been able to assist due to financial constraints. 

Of course, no visit with children is complete without a treat…so we took them for some delicious pizza in New Kingston!  For some students, it was their first time having pizza and they truly enjoyed it!

The current school year ends in June, and CEF is asking you to make a donation, so these students may enter the next grade in high school in September 2013!   Please consider a recurring donation of $25 per month!

In addition, CEF is seeking Education Ambassadors for our Adopt-a-Student Program.  Ambassadorship is open to everyone:  individuals, businesses, organizations and groups.  The cost to fund one student to attend public high school for one year in Jamaica is $1,500 U.S. dollars.  Each Education Ambassador receives direct information about her or his adopted student along with a photograph.  Throughout the school year, each CEF Ambassador is updated with Grade Reports, Attendance Reports and Behavioral Reports about the school performance of his or her adopted child.  Ambassadors may also communicate with their adopted students.   

As you are aware, Public High Schools are NOT FREE in Jamaica.  The cost to attend public high school in Jamaica is at least $1,500 U.S. dollars.  The minimum wage is approximately $50.00 U.S. dollars per week or $200.00 U.S. dollars per month.  Many of the students who receive CEF scholarships have "working poor parent(s)" who are unable to afford the costs of high school due to the low wages they earn.  CEF’s goal is to give youth meaningful choices and opportunities in this world, and thereby break the poverty cycle.  

CEF is seeking 10 Education Ambassadors who are able to help a child gain access to quality education.  Will you be one of THE CEF 10?  Individuals and entities that wish to become a CEF Education Ambassador should contact the Caribbean Education Foundation directly at Email: info@educatechild.org or Phone:  800-677-0839.

Please continue to spread the word about CEF; and Like our page on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter.

As always, CEF cannot do our work without your financial support.  Thank you so much for contributing to help a poor child receive an education.   We truly appreciate your support!

Sarah - CEF Scholar in 2010, 2011, 2012
Sarah - CEF Scholar in 2010, 2011, 2012

Happy New Year!  Caribbean Education Foundation hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your family.  CEF wishes you and your loved ones more love, light, health, happiness and blessings in 2013 and beyond! 

2012 YEAR IN REVIEW:

You have done the right thing in donating to us - - and we THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

Caribbean Education Foundation (CEF) is off to a wonderful start in 2013!  We are excited about our upcoming programs, events and initiatives!  Our CEF Scholars have continued to soar to great heights both academically and in being awarded leadership roles at their schools!  We will let you know in detail about individual children in subsequent reports.  CEF will also update you on our latest initiatives, but first, we wanted to show why you made a difference in 2012.

CEF was honored with a TOP RATED 2012 NONPROFIT AWARD from GreatNonprofits!  We share this honor with all of you!  Nothing is possible without your help.  We truly appreciate your financial support to each child.

YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE IN 2012:

18 children.  18 breaths. 18 smiles.  18 voices.  18 educated.  18 opportunities to thrive.

You have impacted and are transforming the lives of 18 children in need of education.

You are responsible for helping 18 children who are living in poverty to receive meaningful access to quality education in Jamaica.  If education equals opportunity, and opportunity equals life, and we know it does, each of you have directly saved 18 children’s lives in 2012.  The magnitude of your impact cannot be understated.

And so, we wanted to share a letter we recently received from the guardian of a child, Sarah, whom you are helping to educate in Jamaica.  Sarah applied to our Paul Bogle Scholarship Program for high school students in Spring of 2010, so she could attend one of the best public high schools in Jamaica, Immaculate Conception High School for Girls.  At the time, Sarah was 12 years old and wanted desperately to enter Grade 7 in September 2010, but her family did not have the financial resources to fund her education.  Due to our CEF Scholarship, Sarah was able to enter Grade 7 in September 2010; and with your continued generosity in funding our scholarship renewals, Sarah entered Grade 8 in September 2011 and Grade 9 in September 2012.

LETTER FROM SARAH’S GUARDIAN

Dear Caribbean Education Foundation: 

I am so pleased that you were able to sponsor Sarah for another academic year! THANK YOU so very much for your help! 

Sarah continues to be driven by ambition, maturity, initiative and dependability and continues to be a top student and high performer at the Immaculate Conception High School for Girls.

Your continued support has played a major role in my niece, Sarah’s life. I use the word ''life'' because it is not only her education that you have impacted. I am proud to say that this scholarship continues to be a blessing to Sarah’s growth and development.

I personally will continue to push and motivate her to do even better so she can make herself proud and her family, and also make you and your CEF team proud scholarship sponsors.

May the Lord continue to bless you for the work that you and your foundation does.

CEF is also excited to report that this month, we received Sarah’s latest Grade 9 Report and Attendance Report from her school.  Sarah has made Honor Roll again with A grades!  She has also received an additional Award for Perfect Attendance for the Year in Grade 8!  We are very proud of Sarah's achievements!  JOIN US in saying CONGRATULATIONS!

MEET CEF'S NEW 2012 SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

SHAMARIE COLLINS:  St. George's College

Grade:7    Age: 12

Shamarie has always had "big dreams".  He is optimistic about the future and will accomplish his dreams.  He served as "Deputy Head Boy" at St. Peter Claver Primary School and feels he is on a path to be "Outstanding".  The Paul Bogle Scholarship Award would make him feel like he can accomplish any of his dreams.  He plans to excel in high school and attend university.  His career goal is become a principled politician, "a voice for the voiceless".

 

Shamarie was an "A" student at St. Peter Claver.  He was awarded high scores on the GSAT, including 96% in Mathematics and 94% in Social Studies.  He lives with his grandmother who is his guardian, mother and five other children, including two sisters and three cousins all of whom his grandmother takes care of.  He applied for the scholarship without his guardian's knowledge, to be surprise gift to ease the severe financial burden.  Shamarie says, "I hope that someday I will be able to give a child or some needy children the opportunity you are giving me."

 

DANIELLIA SIMPSON:  deCarteret College

Grade:  7    Age:  12

Daniellia has been an "A" student at Duhaney Park Primary School.  She received high scores on the Grade Six Achievement Test, including 96% in Language Arts and 94% in Social Studies.  She passed for St. Andrew High for Girls, her top choice.  Unfortunately, she is unable to attend her first choice, because she had to move to live with her grandmother.

 

Daniellia lives in Manchester with her grandmother, who is her new guardian. Daniellia's mother died in June 2011, when she was just 11 years old.  Her mother's death has been very difficult to deal with.  Despite her circumstances, Daniellia came "Second in her Class" and "Top Girl Overall" at Duhaney Park Primary.  Daniellia knows that success comes with hard work and this guides her on a daily basis.  She says, "If I should be the recipient of the Paul Bogle Scholarship, I would make myself and the organization very proud with the level of work I will produce."  Her goal is to become a Veterinarian to help to heal animals.

 

CHRISTOPHER CHAMBERS:  Ardenne High

Grade:  7     Age:  12

Christopher has been a brilliant “A” student at St. Peter Claver Primary School.   He earned top scores on the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT), including 97% in Mathematics and 97% in Science.   This scholarship will not only provide financial and emotional relief from stress, but also give him motivation in fulfilling his dreams of becoming a Medical Doctor.   His goal is to help the sick, find cures for diseases and increase the life expectancy of humanity.

 

Christopher lives in the “ghetto” with a single parent mother and a twin brother.   His mother tries very hard to provide necessities, but does not have a formal education to get a job that adequately pays to provide for her two children.   Christopher is determined to continue working hard and obtain excellence and a formal education.   There were many times that he and his brother had to go to school without lunch money, but they go to school no matter what.   According to Christopher, “I am fully prepared to make the sky my limit as stated by the great Paul Bogle, ‘I will walk, no, run to the end of the road so that I could be a good role model.’”

CEF Scholars continue to excel!

As the Caribbean Education Foundation (CEF) start a new school year and our nonprofit seeks to ensure that all current scholars are able to continue their high school education for 2012-2013 school year, we thought you should know how they fared last year.

CEF received all the completed Grade Reports for our 12 students on Paul Bogle Scholarship.  We are excited to announce that all CEF Scholars did exceptionally well in high school!  Specifically 10 out of 12 remain "A" students:  Trevisa, Ashauni, Savena, Janneil, Curtis, Janet, Sarah, Tamia, Coya and Garth.  A number of students have perfect attendance records.  Two of the students are Number One in their class:  Trevisa is Number One for all students in Grade 8 at Morant Bay High School.  Ashauni is Number One in Grade 7 at Wolmer's High for Boys.

New Applicants:

Each year as school approaches and the CEF Scholarship Committee pours over tons of our Paul Bogle Scholarship applications, we are continually struck by how brilliant these children are!  We also get disheartened, because CEF's resources are severely limited and only a handful of the deserving will receive a scholarship. It is sad and heartbreaking...

Meet Shakar:  12 years old

In one of his essays, Shakar writes:

"I am qualified to receive a scholarship because I am hardworking, humble, dedicated and a determined individual.  After working so hard to pass my G.S.A.T. examination it finally pays off.  I am excited about going to the school of my choice, as I am closer in my career path to become a Civil Engineer.

I am qualified for this scholarship because of the hardship faced by my mother sending me to school with an absentee father, at times I only have fare to go and my teacher would assist me with lunch and fare to come home.  Sometimes I would save the little much my mother gave me so I would not be absent from school too much.  When the stresses of life reaches her she would sometimes borrow back the money I saved in order to meet other financial needs.  Most times I walked part way to school as I don't have the bus fare to take two buses so I walked and meet the bus that takes me near my school.  Sometimes I am tired but I know my mother has it hard so I just go to school and do my best.

I live in the Waltham Park area where my community is plagued by thieves, drugs and the 'barking of guns'.  When I looked on the young people in my community on the streets, not going to school, it makes me so depressed, but this scholarship will motivate me not to be one of them but to always listen to my mother's words that the only way out of poverty is through education.  I know that with your help I will make Caribbean Education Foundation, my mother, my teachers, my family and my community proud."

Shakar applied for scholarship last year, and would have received one, but CEF did not have sufficient funds.  He has resubmitted his application.  We are hoping to renew Scholarships for 12 children to attend high school. But with your donation, CEF will be able to assist few more additional children, like Shakar, to gain meaningful access quality education!   There are a number of ways in which you can help CEF to meet our goals:

In Child's Month, the Caribbean Education Foundation launches ADOPT-A-STUDENT and CEF Education Ambassadors Program to increase its scholarship recipient pool, in order help more brilliant children in Jamaica to attend High Schools for the upcoming 2012-2013 school year and beyond.

During May, as a part of CEF “Child’s Month” initiative, Caribbean Education Foundation’s representatives traveled to Jamaica and conducted a tour of 10 Primary Schools in Kingston, St. Andrew, St. Catherine and St. Thomas.  We met with school leaders including Principals, Teachers and Counselors; visited classrooms, inspected dismal, mostly nonexistent libraries and observed virtually nonexistent computer areas.  We saw thousands of children who are in financial need.  Our team met with a number of these students who are in Grade 6 and recently took the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT), the exam they must pass to attend High Schools in Grade 7.  We heard first-hand how these children will have an even more dire existence when they graduate from the Primary Schools in June and enter High Schools in September 2012!  In High School, they will now have to pay school fees, costly text books, transportation and lunch in addition to the usual uniforms and school supplies - - additional costs which do not exist at the primary school level. 

As you may know, Public High Schools are NOT FREE in Jamaica.  The cost to attend high school in Jamaica is $1,500 U.S. dollars.  The minimum wage is approximately $50.00 U.S. dollars per week or $200.00 U.S. dollars per month.  The students who receive CEF scholarships have working parent(s) who are unable to afford the costs of high school due to the low wages they earn.  CEF’s goal is to give youth meaningful choices and opportunities in this world and thereby help to break the poverty cycle.  

Due to your generous assistance, we were able to send 12 children to high school last year, including Ashauni Bernard. 

*****************************************************************************

STUDENT UPDATE:  ASHAUNI BERNARD MADE HONOR ROLL at Wolmer’s Boys High School! He is 12 years old and currently in Grade 7.  Please help us say CONGRATULATIONS to Ashauni on a job well done! 

*****************************************************************************

CEF is very proud that our students are excelling in High School!  We would like to provide more children with the opportunity to attend school and excel.  In light of the reality witnessed on our Jamaica Primary School Tour, CEF realizes that we simply cannot wait to expand our efforts to provide more children with scholarships this year. 

As a result, the Caribbean Education Foundation is launching an ADOPT-A-STUDENT and Education Ambassadors Program!  The program goals are to immediately expand our scholarship recipient pool, in order to help more children attend High School in September 2012-2013 school year and beyond.  We know that with your help, CEF will make this a reality for these additional needy children!

CEF Education Ambassadorship is open to everyone including:  individuals, businesses, organizations and groups.  In order to be a CEF Education Ambassador, the person or entity must ADOPT-A-STUDENT for the school year by agreeing to donate or raise funds to fully fund the student in the Paul Bogle Scholarship Program.  The cost to fund one student to attend public high school for one year in Jamaica is $1,500 U.S. dollars.  An Education Ambassador may donate funds that exceed the $1,500 U.S. dollars, but is committed to supporting at least one student.  Ambassadors must raise student adoption funds by July 31st of each year.

Each Education Ambassador receives direct information about her or his adopted student along with a photograph.  Throughout the school year, each CEF Ambassador is updated with Grade Reports, Attendance Reports and Behavioral Reports about the school performance of his or her adopted child.  Ambassadors may also communicate with adopted students if they choose to do so, through the organization.  

One hundred percent of adoption aid funds the CEF Paul Bogle Scholarships to enable students in financial need to attend high schools in Jamaica.  The scholarships pay school fees, text books, school supplies, uniforms, transportation and lunch.  None of the student adoption funds goes towards administrative expenses, unless an entity so specifies.  Furthermore, Ambassadors may serve beyond adopting a student.  They also serve as "CEF diplomats" if you will, for the Caribbean Education Foundation.  The names of Ambassadors will be listed on the organization's website, brochures, newsletters, program books and acknowledgements at events, unless he or she chooses to remain anonymous.

In discussing the initiative, Caribbean Education Foundation's President & CEO, Nikiki T. Bogle, Esq. stated, "CEF is very excited about our ADOPT-A-STUDENT launch!  We believe that individual adoptions gives ownership to our Education Ambassadors; and also ensures direct accounting of donated funds that are benefiting their particular student's education.  We hope this knowledge makes persons and organizations more willing to lend a helping hand, which is so desperately needed for poor children's educational access.”  

CEF is seeking several Education Ambassadors who are able to help a child gain access to quality education.  Please contact us regarding the opportunity to directly impact a child's life and make a difference!  Please suggest a CEF student adoption to your network, companies, firms, organizations, family and friends.  You never know who will step up!  It might surprise you!  Individuals and entities that wish to become a CEF Education Ambassador should contact the Caribbean Education Foundation directly at Email: nbogle@educatechild.org or Phone:  800-677-0839 ext. 105.
