A CHILD TO HIGH SCHOOL IN JAMAICA RURAL AREA
Did you know
that public High Schools in Jamaica are NOT FREE! The cost per High School student is $1600 US per year. The
minimum wage is $56 U.S. per week for a 40 hours work week. As you can imagine,
it is practically impossible for low income families to send their children to
High School. We are committed to making a difference in student's life.
This is where we come in:
Jupiter Five believes that every
child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. In order
to achieve our commitment, a portion of
proceeds from every JUPITER FIVE purchase will be donated to support this cause
to Send- A Child to High School in Kingsvale, Jamaica (my hometown) for the
basic school essentials.
Our goal is to award 35 boys and
girls Jupiter Five scholarships by September 2016. The scholarships will be renewable annually;
the renewal will not only be based on financial needs but academic merit as
JF Mission: Once we’ve achieve our
goal with the High School students we’ll expand our focus to increase literacy
among students in kindergarten through third grade. We want to increase reading
proficiently by the end of third grade for children from low-income families.
Our vision is
helping low income children receive meaningful access to quality education one
parish at a time, starting with Kingsvale
