FIVE YEARS AGO in September 2010, at 12 years old, Trevisa was awarded a CEF Paul Bogle Scholarship based on high academics and financial need, to attend public high school in Jamaica. She graduated from Morant Bay Primary School with several academic awards and excellence on the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT). Throughout her primary education, Trevisa had been a TOP SCHOLAR and was awarded the “Principal’s Trophy” for being the Most Outstanding Academic Student of the Graduating Class and Obtaining Highest Average on the GSAT maintained an “A” Grade Point Average. Among the high sores on all 6 subjects on the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT), Trevisa received 100% in Composition and 99% in Mathematics. She was a member of 4-H Club and Debate Team. Our CEF Paul Bogle Scholarship paid Trevisa’s school fees, text books, uniforms, shoes and socks, school supplies, lunch and transportation so she was able to attend high school. Trevisa stands as an impressive young lady, now at 17 years old!

Each year for the past five years, CEF has renewed Trevisa’s Scholarship in years 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, so she could continue to attend high school. Due to our partnership with GlobalGiving and your generous financial contributions, CEF was able to renew the Paul Bogle Scholarship and fully fund Trevisa’s education for the 2011-2015 school years. 

In her Scholarship Application, Trevisa explained, "there were many times at school that I was hungry and did not have lunch to eat, so it was really hard concentrate in class.  My mother had no money to give me for lunch and there was no food in the house to take to school.  Many nights I could not complete all the homework, because I did not have necessary school supplies."  Because of you, Trevisa did not have to worry those things anymore and was able to fully concentrate on her education and excel in high school. 

Economic circumstances notwithstanding, Trevisa held a laser-beam focus and excelled each year in high school! She made Honor Roll each term at Morant Bay High with an “A” Grade Point Average.

As Trevisa continues in her quest now in Sixth Form and next to journey to University, we wish her all the best! We hope that continues to keep focus and remain a positive force in her community, Jamaica and the world. CEF will continue to renew Trevisa’s Scholarship for the Sixth Form years, as long as we have funding to do so.

We would like say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone, particularly our hundreds of Global Giving donors, who have generously contributed to the Caribbean Education Foundation (CEF)!  We truly appreciate all of your support.  A SPECIAL THANK YOU to CEF’s CEO, Nikiki Bogle, Esq., who has sponsored Trevisa’s Paul Bogle Scholarship from 201-2015 through our CEF Education Ambassadors Program!

Our CEF Scholars such as Trevisa graduating from High School is the reward for your kindness, generosity and love.

Educate One Child. Empower a Community. And Transform our World.

Please let us continue to ensure each child has meaningful access to education in Jamaica!

CEF Scholar, Tamia, at high school graduation 2015
CEF Scholar, Tamia, at high school graduation 2015

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Caribbean Education Foundation Scholarship Recipient, Tamia, who graduated from Hampton High School in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica in 2015! Tamia graduated on the “Principal's Honor Roll” with a Gold cord! She has an overall “A” Grade Point Average for all the years at high school! In addition, Tamia attained 8 SUBJECTS on the CXC exams, including a 1 in Mathematics, Information Technology and English! We are incredibly PROUD of Tamia’s stellar accomplishments!

In 2011, at 13 years old, Tamia was awarded the CEF Paul Bogle Scholarship based on high academics and financial need, to attend high school. She graduated from Mount Airy All Age School in Negril, Westmoreland, Jamaica. She was a top student for the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT). In 1 of 4 Scholarship Application Essays, Tamia wrote, “I am a hardworking and a disciplined individual who knows that education is the only sure way out of poverty.”  Since then, each year CEF has renewed Tamia’s Scholarship, so she could continue to attend high school. Four years later, Tamia stands as an impressive young lady!

Tamia has to board close to school at increased costs, because Hampton High is located in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica and she lives in another parish. For the first year at Hampton School, Tamia’s mother was able to manage okay financially, as she was employed and received some assistance from Tamia's absent father.   In November 2010, Tamia’s mother was diagnosed with Leukemia and had to stop working regularly due to her deteriorating health condition.  During all of this, the father disappeared and his minor financial assistance was cut off.  

Despite incredibly challenging family health and financial circumstances, Tamia kept focus and excelled! She received numerous Academic Award Certificates for Outstanding Performance; and made Honor Roll each year!

As Tamia continues in her education quest in Sixth Form and journeys on next to University, we wish her all the best! We hope that she keeps focus and becomes a positive force in her community, Jamaica and the world. CEF will continue to renew Tamia’s Scholarship for the next 2 years of Sixth Form, as long as we have funding to do so.

A “HEARTFELT THANK YOU” to our CEF Education Ambassador & Director Emeritus, Mr. Sean C. Donovan, who sponsored Tamia’s CEF Paul Bogle Scholarship from 2011-2015! Although the two never met, Mr. Donovan wanted to help a brilliant student from rural Jamaica and adopted Tamia for education sponsorship. He was our CEF Education Ambassador for Tamia. In July 2014, Sean Donovan, a Founding Board of Director of Caribbean Education Foundation, passed away from sudden heart failure and it devastated our organization and his daughter, our CEF Founder & CEO, Nikiki Bogle, Esq. Amazingly, while he was very ill and just weeks before he died, Mr. Donovan emailed fundraising appeals to donors to fulfill his sponsorship of Tamia’s final year of high school. As a result, CEF received most of those donations for the 2014-2015 school year after Mr. Donovan’s death. December 5th 2015 would have been Mr. Donovan’s 57th Birthday. He is greatly missed.

Sean C. Donovan was a true champion of education and elimination of poverty in our world!  We truly appreciate his immense and invaluable support to the Caribbean Education Foundation, our brilliant Scholars and team. Sean Donovan’s beacon of light shines on forever in our brilliant scholars lives that he has immensely enriched.

A Special Thank You to all the donors who contributed to Sean Donovan’s Fundraisers for Tamia throughout the years!  You made her graduation a reality. 

THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed or will contribute to the Caribbean Education Foundation (CEF)! Our CEF Scholars such as Tamia graduating from High School is the reward for your kindness, generosity and love. Please let us continue to make each CEF Scholar have meaningful access to education in Jamaica!

Ravorn
Ravorn's holding his High School Diploma - 2015

 BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Caribbean Education Foundation Paul Bogle Scholarship Recipient, Ravorn, who graduated from Calabar High School in Kingston, Jamaica! We are so PROUD of Ravorn’s tremendous accomplishment!

A high school diploma is an important step in preparing a young person to live an independent, secure and happy life and to contribute to Jamaica's economic competitiveness as part of an educated, innovative workforce.


In 2010, at 12 years old, Ravorn was awarded the CEF Paul Bogle Scholarship based on high academics and financial need, to attend high school. He graduated from Duhaney Park Primary School in Kingston, Jamaica. Ravorn’s primary school is streamed where bright students are placed at the top and other students in descending streams. Ravorn was placed in the fourth stream and not expected to pass his exam for a top school. He proved everyone wrong by passing for Calabar High School! He obtained 96% in Mathematics and 90% in Science on the GSAT Exam. Ravorn received many awards: Most Outstanding Student in His Class, English Language, Science, Religious Education and Most Disciplined Student. Since 2010, each year CEF has renewed Ravorn’s Paul bogle Scholarship, so he could continue to attend high school. Five years later, Ravorn stands as an impressive young man!

Despite incredibly challenging economic and academic circumstances in the inner-city community of Riverton City where he lives, Ravorn tried his best to focus on school. Ravorn is now in Sixth Form and plans to attend University to major in Business Administration. Having attained 1’s in Business Administration, Principles of Accounts and Mathematics on the Caribbean Examination Council (CSEC), we have no doubt Ravorn will excel as a Business Major at university! We wish Ravorn the very best in Sixth Form and his journey to university! We hope that Ravorn keeps focus and becomes a positive force in his community, Jamaica and the world. CEF will continue to renew Ravorn’s Scholarship for the next 2 years of Sixth Form, as long as we have funding to do so. You may help with funding here:

THE HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE

SHE DID IT!!! BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Caribbean Education Foundation (CEF) Scholarship Recipient, Coya, who graduated from Wolmer’s High School for Girls in Kingston, Jamaica! We are so PROUD of Coya’s accomplishment!

Graduation was held on Tuesday, June 23rd 2015 and we are excited that some of our team members were able to attend, including CEF President & CEO, Nikiki Bogle, Esquire!

Coya stands as an impressive young lady, now at 17 years old! Five years ago in September 2010, at 12 years old, Coya was one of six students who were awarded a CEF Paul Bogle Scholarship based on high academics and financial need, to attend public high school in Jamaica. She graduated from Duhaney Park Primary School with several academic awards and excellence on the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT).

Throughout her primary education, Coya had been a TOP SCHOLAR and earned the highest score at Duhaney Park Primary on the GSAT. She graduated at the top of her school and was Valedictorian of her shift. Among the high sores on all 6 subjects on the GSAT Examination, Coya received 100% in Composition and 98% in Mathematics. Coya lived in Spanish Town, St. Catherine with her aunt/guardian and four children in the household. The financial circumstances were dire and even more so, because her guardian was suffering from breast cancer. Her guardian had undergone a mastectomy and was receiving chemotherapy treatments at the time. In addition to trying to find money to pay for expensive cancer treatments, Coya’s guardian had four additional young children she was trying to put through school. Sadly, Coya’s guardian died of cancer in 2014.

Each year for the past five years, CEF has renewed Coya’s Scholarship in years 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, so she could continue to attend high school.

Throughout her High School career at the Wolmer's, Coya continues to excel in academics and plays a leading role on her school’s Track and Field team, competing in the Discus.  Despite very challenging economic and emotional circumstances, including the death of her guardian from cancer, Coya has held steadfast in focus to do her best and succeed!
