This fabulous organization takes on a specific purpose, education of children, and puts the money where it is most needed. Children are the adults of tomorrow, and insuring their education will build a better world. There are fewer ways to make sure a donation is well spent.

The results are obvious in the children who have received scholarships and what the scholarships have enabled them to do.

The Caribbean Education Foundation, Inc. (CEF) based in Boston, Massachusetts is a wonderful nonprofit doing excellent work to help poor children receive an education! I have volunteered with CEF for 3 years now. It is a fantastic organization with a professional and very active Board who are all volunteers. The Executive Officers are dedicated volunteers too.

I learned a great deal from CEF, which raised awareness that PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS ARE NOT FREE IN JAMAICA. Thousands of brilliant poor children are unable to attend high school there, because parents cannot afford the school fees, text books, transportation, school supplies and meals.

This is the organization's major effort right now--to help poor children have meaningful access to high school education in its current mission country of Jamaica. To do so, it awards "Paul Bogle Scholarships" for High School children. CEF plans to expand its scholarship programs to other Caribbean countries in 2012.

I particularly love that CEF has Financial Transparency and at least 80% of funds raised go to the CEF Scholarship Programs. All donations designated for Scholarships are 100% donated to that program. This results in the organization being able to provide more Scholarships to underprivileged children to attend school.

The Great!

I have personally experienced real results with CEF. I personally donated money to CEF and witnessed that it went to fund student scholarships for poor children to be able to attend Public High School in Jamaica. I also helped with fundraisers and saw that the profits went to the CEF Scholarships for children. In 2010, CEF awarded Scholarships to Six 11-year-old children to attend high school; and in 2008, it funded Four university students. I know CEF plans to give more scholarships this year in 2011.

If I had to make changes to CEF, I would award it some serious grant and sponsorship money. The organization has an established track record of using donors' funds to help children. Importantly, CEF would be able to pay its Executive Officers who would work full-time on the programs, conduct more fundraisers and ultimately award more scholarships to help even more children to receive a quality education in the Caribbean and developing world.
