Thank you for your donations. Let's keep this going; double the donations. There are 890 primary schools across the island. The pandemic has forced students and teachers into distance learning - lets do our part to support them.

The American Friends of Jamaica (AFJ) has partnered with the Seprod Foundation, part of the Musson Group, and the Ministry of Education to identify schools and students in need of tablets across the island.
