As part of efforts to bolster the educational opportunities spearheaded by Stand Up for Jamaica’s (SUFJ) for inmates within three of the island’s correctional facilities, Sandals Foundation has donated approximately JM $900,000 to aid with high school leaving exam - the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC).

The grant will support the education of inmates sitting Mathematics and English Language subjects at South Camp Juvenile Correctional, St. Catherine Adult Correctional Centre, and Remand Centre for Girls and Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre.

The Sandals Foundation believes in the power of second chances. Together, with these well needed text books and resources, we are helping to rehabilitate men and women who are in need of hope.
