Review for Eastwick Foundation, Ramsey, NJ, USA
The Eastwick Foundations' Good JuJu Project raises awareness of educational needs, and provides research-based educational services for children in Jamaica. Angela, the founder and current director of the project, also owns and operates JuJu tours.
Angela manages to combine tons of fun on tours, while at the same time acquainting vacationers with the lives and school routines of children. Along the route of the tour, we played in a volley-ball tournament, visited a mineral springs, toured art murals, and had a healthy, five-star lunch.
The memory that stayed with us after the vacation was learning about Angela's work with the schools. She had us at " Do you want to hear about some cute kids?"
Since 2013, we've had contact with the professionals servicing the educational needs of children in varying situations. Through letters, pictures and stories , we've been transported beyond " writing a check for charity, " to hearing of how our contribution ensued every single student went on that field trip to the Bird Sanctuary.
Interestingly, and unlike any other of the foundations to which I've donated, The JuJu Project encourages and listens to my ideas. Having an education background , I'm expected to ask questions. Feedback about the JuJu Project, to the umbrella Eastwick Foundation, is valued and used in planning next steps.
