Helping Jamaica’s Needy Schools
[dropcap]J[/dropcap]AH JAH Foundation awards scholarships through the Hazel B. Dixon Foundation to children who are unable to attend school, because families are unable to pay school fees and other required school related costs. Our student scholarships pay school fees, purchase text books, supplies, uniforms, meals and transportation. The foundation operates exclusively for charitable and educational purposes enabling less fortunate children with meaningful access to fundamental education in the Jamaica.
JAH JAH Foundation is dedicated to supplying much needed equipment to Jamaican Schools, through US based organisations, groups, businesses and individuals.
Please help JAH JAH Foundation aid our youth to Educate, Empower, Transform. JAH JAH Foundation needs your help to provide fundamental educational access and grant poor children the necessary opportunity and critical tools to change their own lives.
- Children with little or no hope of education
- Families living in extreme poverty
- Physically and mentally handicapped students
The Hazel B. Dixon Foundation
Our aim is inform the public as we rally for donations of Books and Resources to be distributed to the Schools in great need by our partners in Jamaica as we serve as mentors to our children.
Born in Christiana, Manchester, Dixon migrated to the US at age 10. He never forgot the words of his mother, nurse Hazel B. Dixon, who died in 2005. She had always said, “Instead of complaining about the problem, do something”. Always desiring to help his country of birth, he started at the Christiana Hospital. He moved on to a larger-scale effort when he met Wong through Dr Sonia Copeland from the Ministry of Health, and got involved with KPH. “I am hoping to encourage others to get involved and to give, especially to the public hospitals that have a high volume of patients and are under-resourced,” said Dixon.
