JWN Foundation has invested J$10 million, in cash and kind, in the JMMB Joan Duncan Foundation-led transformational project dubbed 'Conversations for Greatness'.

This philanthropic partnership is expected to positively transform the lives of hundreds of Jamaican youth and school leaders across four schools in Kingston and St Elizabeth.

The programme, spearheaded by the JMMB Joan Duncan Foundation, is aimed at inspiring schoolteachers, administrators and other support staff to become transformational agents and, in so doing, assist in the improvement of primary and secondary schools that are performing below the national average in English and mathematics, according to the most recent report from the National Education Inspectorate. Conversations for Greatness will be implemented in approximately 150 schools islandwide, over a three-year period.
