Direct beneficiaries per year: 18 children in need of an education.
Geographic areas served: Jamaica
Our current mission country is Jamaica. For example, in Jamaica, PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION IS NOT FREE. Many poor children are unable to attend high school because families cannot afford the costs.
