HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF $30,000! This amount will be matched by one of our generous donors.
We're raising money to benefit Winsome Wishes For KIDS (WWKIDS) as they launch pilot programs at three schools in Jamaica . They are Gideon Education Centre, Lannaman's Prep and Vaz Prep Schools.
The mission of Winsome Wishes for Kids (WWKIDS) is to help children with learning challenges and/or learning disabilities become their best selves. We are partnering with the esteemed New York-based Windward Institute’s (WI) whose mission is to increase childhood literacy rates by disrupting the educational status quo to save more lives. A multi-disciplinary team of educators, counselors, social workers and coaches will oversee the pilot programs guided by scientifically proven research from the Winward Institute.
Our fundamental vision is to create equity in the classroom and help all students succeed. The main goal is to procure academic resources, provide enhanced training for teachers, and distribute funding necessary to the schools that do not have the resources to serve the children with special needs in their community. The program will initially focus on identifying children who need additional learning support and ultimately deliver tools and supportive services to those students and their families while also supporting the professional development of teachers through in-person workshops and webinars led by the Winward Institute experts.
The funds raised will be used to improve the technology infrastructure, and enhance professional teacher training through on going professional development programs at these schools.
The pilot schools are struggling to keep their doors open and are in desperate need of technological help! Please consider donating today.
