The institution was chosen by Meshae Caple, a member of the Jamaican diaspora living in Chicago, Illinois, who won the foundation’s Build Back Yard Competition. As the winner, Caple selected the Hanover-based institution to receive $190,000 to support their activities. RECENTLY, PACECanada.org delivered more than J$4.5 million in cheques to the Early Childhood Commission.
This represents the second donation by PACE in 2016, bringing the total to $9.7 million, sent to 239 schools across Jamaica.
In 2017, PACECanada.org will be celebrating its 30th anniversary of supporting early-childhood schools and teachers in Jamaica through donations, teacher bursaries and training, and computer education programmes for the students.
PACECanada.org is proud to be a partner with the Ministry of Education in promoting early-childhood education. On November 1, Diana Burke (right), a board director of PACECanada.org, delivered more than $4.5 million in cheques for schools to Trisha Williams-Singh, chair of the Early Childhood Commission. These funds were donated to 106 early-childhood schools across all parishes.
