Children Get Books from Palmyra Foundation
Under the slogan 'The future is bright, when you can read and write', the Palmyra Foundation's Books4Kids Jamaica programme is dedicated to providing books to four and five year-old pre-k and kindergarten children in infant schools across Jamaica. This year, 120 schools and 11,000 kindergarten children across Jamaica will benefit from the programme.
Since its start-up in 2007, more than 130 international volunteers have helped provide more than 170,000 books to 51,592 children in 130 schools across Jamaica's 14 parishes. To date, the Palmyra Foundation has donated books valued at over US$1m. The Palmyra Foundation is a non-profit charity registered in Jamaica and the United States.
