About us

Our Mission:

Our Mission is to introduce creative and interactive methods of reading that encourage children to enjoy literature and aids the less fortunate in changing future disparaging lifestyles affected by illiteracy.

Our Purpose:

To assist schools, reading centers, and after school programs in acquiring literacy and library resources (large and diverse) helping disadvantaged students increase their opportunities to learn and to read.

To coordinate and facilitate annual reading day celebrations along with bi-monthly activities that provide incentives through partnerships with schools, communities, parents, businesses, global sponsors and policy makers.

The Read Across Jamaica Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) exempt public charity. Contributions are deductible under section 170 of the Code.

The Read Across Jamaica Literacy Project (RAJLP) was fueled by research and awareness that students were being passed through the education system and tossed into an economic situation that continued to leave them functionally illiterate. By looking at performance and student approaches to learning, our technique resembles a community learning environment that is part of the solution.
