Jamaica: Keep a Child Learning
Last week we started our pilot project in Jamaica, Caribbean to keep children in school.
Project Co-ordinators Wycliffe and Veronica Blair have a passion to see the children in their district attending school. So many of the families cannot afford to provide their children with shoes, books, uniforms and everything they need to be allowed to attend school. So their plan is to work with the schools to identify these families and help them out. Keeping children in school is so important. Getting an education can be the difference between getting out of poverty and remaining trapped in the vicious cycle.
Wycliffe came into the office to share more of his heart for this last week and we were able to mark the moment officially by putting the ‘pin in the map’!
