Back to school in Jamaica
The Get Kids to School (GKTS) Program in Negril, Jamaica fully sponsored 72 children last year making it possible for children to attend school every day.
Without the support of Franciscan benefactors and friends, many of these children would not have this opportunity for an education. “We have to try. We are the only chance some of these kids will ever have of rising above this poverty”, says Fr. Jim Bok, OFM.
Because of your support, uniforms, school supplies, early morning breakfast, lunch money and rides to school are provided as part of this commitment.
“Each school year we look forward to assisting as many children as possible. Thanks to Joan Cooney, called "Ms. Joans," for her tireless volunteer oversight of our Get Kids To School program.
This year we are preparing to outfit 150 students.
