Mission Statement

School Supplies for Treasure Beach is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that brings educational and teaching resources to underserved schools and learning centers in rural southern Jamaica. Treasure Beach is located on the south coast of Jamaica, in St. Elizabeth Parish. Due to it's rural location, children can face geographical and financial limitations finding adequate school supplies. After traveling to Jamaica for several years, we heard many stories from people who struggled to buy their children school supplies. We also heard from adults that struggled themselves as children because they lacked school supplies. There is also a lack of school supplies in local shops, and some supplies are not available at all. We knew we could help by bringing school supplies to the children in Treasure Beach.

Description

We bring school supplies, technology, clothing, and hygiene supplies to children in the Greater Treasure Beach area. We hold school supply drives and fundraisers to purchase supplies. We have several programs/projects in the works for 2019/20 and 2020/21!
