I was been about to be dragged to court by an lending agency I borrowed some money from to send my kids to school onelove4kids step up to the plate and took care of that loan for me which was giving me sleepless nights and I was unable to even relate to my kids I was miserable because I saw no way out. Thank you onelove4kids because as the book of proverbs said .. The Borrower is a slave to the Lender .. I was a slave and u freed me ... Thanks Thanks Thanks and keep up the good work

Drews Avenue Primary & Infant School is a beneficiary of the Charity of One Love for Kids Foundation. In December 2011, twenty five needy children were given gifts of school supplies and were also treated to lunch. In September 2012 for the start of the new school year these children were again blessed by the foundation. They received bags, shoes, items of clothing etc. Parents were extremely grateful and the faces of their children beamed happily. Great job One Love for Kids!

The New Providence Primary School in kingston Jamaica is a beneficiary of the generosity of the CASACO Foundation. On December 14, 2010 through founder Sherenette Dixon the school was the recipient of various school supplies including dictionaries novels workbooks notebooks, pencils, pens,and art supplies. Many of our students are from economically challenged communities some of whom come to school without the necessary school supplies for working. the supplies received will assist us in catering to the needs of some of our students.
Thank you CASACO for reaching out to us. We appreciate your help.
