The Franciscan Friars of St. John the Baptist Province have had a missionary presence in Jamaica for more than 20 years. Their ministries include parish work, food and medical assistance, and supporting the education of Jamaican children.
Your Support this Giving Tuesday will aid in the Revival Infancy Program enhancing the education of children ages 3-6 by:
• Transforming a field of rocks and overgrown grass in a rural area into a modern, well-equipped educational facility.
• Providing young children with the basic foundation of their education and strong moral values to overcome barriers, including poverty and violence, to become productive citizens.
• Accommodating 150 students in 6 secure, comfortable classrooms and providing age appropriate resources and technology to enhance their education, and a nutritious lunchtime meal.
• Ensuring teachers are well-trained, supported and equipped with the resources they need to provide the best education for the students in their care.
• Ensuring early childhood Catholic education remains viable moving into the future.
