Many students in Jamaica do not have a single book at home, and at school it is a similar story. In many classrooms across Jamaica, students lack access to a library at school or sufficient books in the classroom.
Just as having qualified teachers in the classroom is critical to learning, and progress, access to books is critical to a young child's success. At Reading Owls, our goal is to create readers for life. With your help, we will partner with grassroots organizations in Jamaica so that every boy and girl is afforded the opportunity to succeed.
