UK Charity Helps Jamaican Schools
Pearl Jarrett, a citizen of the United Kingdom (UK) with Jamaican heritage, established the Jarrett Foundation, which includes second- and third-generation Jamaicans.
She recently took educational and personal supplies for students attending under-resourced schools in St Mary, Portland, St Thomas, Manchester, and St Ann.
"We have a country director who assists us with organising our trip, and we asked persons in Jamaica to nominate schools which they identified as being in need. We consulted the JNBS Foundation which recommended schools that are a part of its iLead Programme, Jarrett said."
Since its official establishment in 2011, the Jarrett Foundation has been visiting Jamaica annually. With generous support from various UK-based organisations, Jarrett says that the impact has been tremendous over the years. They also get assistance from the JN Foundation's Act!on Volunteers.
