Ninety- eight adopted schools in Jamaica are the recipients of $40,000 (J$4 million) thanks to a Canadian charity, Project for the Advancement of Childhood Education (PACE) Canada.
President Sandra Whiting said the organization has helped thousands of children in Jamaica. “PACE Canada is committed to assisting basic school children in Jamaica and Canada and has adopted more that 300 Jamaican schools since the organization was founded in 1987.”
The funds were presented this week at the office of the Ministry of Education’s Early Childhood Commission in Jamaica, the first distribution this year from PACE Canada. Another cheque will be presented later this year.
