OR WRITE TO US:
All Jamaican students can achieve academic excellence. Understanding and identifying each student’s individual needs and learning style is the key. It will open the doors to the children of the future; they will be the pride of Jamaica.
Education for all is not complete or inclusive in the model foundation of a one size fits all system. The academic resources, trained teachers, and funding needed to provide a basic education for students with challenges is disproportionate, and in many cases nonexistent throughout the region. The most common types of specific learning disabilities are those that impact the areas of reading and math. The increased decline in test scores on the elementary and secondary school level is confirmation that there is a need for additional resources. We must come up with solutions when the Jamaican education system does not. It is time to implement a program that answers the question: are we READY?
A New Paradigm for Jamaica’s educational foundation will set clear objectives with an individualized purpose for each educational setting. Upon completing the necessary steps to complete those objectives, the READY initiative will assess all the resources needed for implementation. Our main goal is to provide the academic resources, talented teachers, and funding necessary to the schools that are in desperate need of our help. We aim to get them READY.
Our “READY – SET – GO” campaign kicks off with our READY project (Resources; Education for all; Achievement; Dedication; Youth first) with the Windward Institute December 2020.
We are partners with;
The Windward Institute, NY RISE to Education, Jamaica
Higher Potential for Learning, NV AYS Consults Ltd, Jamaica
ISSA Trust Foundation, FL Kozy Korner Books, Jamaica
Digital Foundation, Jamaica
Windward Institute's mission is to increase childhood literacy rates by disrupting the educational status quo to save more lives. A multi-disciplinary team of educators, counselors, social workers and coaches will oversee the pilot programs guided by scientifically proven research from The Windward Institute.
WWKIDS has negotiated a 2-1/2 year pilot program with The Windward Institute, targeting the early childhood years PreK to Grade 2.
In order to see a change, we must be that change. As youth, we will use our power and strength to bring forth this change in the form of educational opportunities, thereby motivating and encouraging discipline, humility and empowering values to create well rounded and intelligent citizens of our country. We aim to have instilled "...be that change.., in other to guarantee a fruitful chain reaction. We believe every child deserves unbiased access to education.
