CEF's President, Nikiki Bogle, explains why Paul Bogle Scholarships are important, “Public High Schools in Jamaica are NOT FREE.  It is a tremendous challenge for the working poor to provide the resources to send children to public high schools in Jamaica.  We cannot leave an entire population of brilliant children to a life sentence of poverty with no opportunity for progress.  Education will provide them with opportunities for success.”
