Do something amazing this holiday season.
Help ensure every child in Jamaica can See Better. Learn Better.
Education is the key to greater opportunity in life. But what if a child can’t see well?
What if they cannot see what is written on the board or in school books? How will this impact their education and future?
Thousands of schoolchildren in Jamaica do not have access to comprehensive eye care or glasses.
Cornerstone Jamaica is changing that. We believe every child deserves an equal chance for academic success.
Meet Deanna. Deanna is 12 years old and loves going to school. But, when she started to get headaches, to struggle in class and to stop enjoying school, no one seemed to know why. The doctor prescribed Deanna headache medication, but the problem was with her eyes, not her head.
In 2020, as part of See Better. Learn Better, Deanna was seen by a volunteer optometrist who identified the problem and promptly prescribed glasses. Deanna is back to getting good grades and most importantly, enjoying school again!
Since our founding in 2014, we have screened almost 7,000 elementary school-aged children across 11 schools in rural Jamaica. We have prescribed glasses to 800!
Our goal is to provide vision screening to every child in Jamaica.
Your gift will help ensure every child has an equal chance to education.
Help us help kids in Jamaica, See Better. Learn Better.
Thank you for your generosity!
