On Monday January 29, 2018, The Jeanette Grant-Woodham Education Foundation (JGWEF) members Mr. Kiddo Smith (chairman), Ms. Valerie Carter (treasurer) and Mrs. Carol Hammond (assistant treasurer) attended and participated in the devotional exercise marking the 49th anniversary of the Tivoli Gardens High School.
The staff and students were addressed by Mrs. Hammond and Mr. Kiddo Smith, who shared the Foundation’s goals, objectives, accomplishments, and plans for 2018. Special mentioned was made of the upcoming JGWEF Fundraising Dinner, to be held on Saturday, August 4 at The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel.
To mark this 49 year milestone the JGWEF presented a cheque of JA$52,400 to the athletic department. This donation will be used to purchase running shoes (spikes) for student athletes who will be participating in the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) Boys and Girls Championship in March. The Principal, Mr. Aldrick Durrant, commended the Foundation and its members for taking this initiative for the school.
Long live this great institution (TGHS)!
education is the key to ending poverty
Because giving to the Jeanette Grant-Woodham Foundation will help efforts in improving literacy, incentivizing attendance, providing supplies and technology, and make tutoring outside the classroom accessible and affordable.
Why give to jgwef?
Because education is a fundamental human right of every child.
Why a foundation?
Because the opportunity to help enrich one student's educational experience is the
opportunity to change the future for one person and for everyone he or she influences.
