Growing up in poverty, kids face tough challenges: hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and medical services, gang violence, social discrimination and isolation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Together, we can transform the lives of children in poverty. It starts right here, right now when you sponsor a child.
Your minimum monthly gift of $20 ensures that Jamaican children living in poverty have access to life-changing benefits like educational support, life skills and after-school care. For some children, summer means idle time or days without any food. You can help change that by signing up to be a sponsor for our year-round school program, which includes tutoring, mentoring, breakfast and lunch.
Simone4Children Foundation (S4C) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by the first Jamaican WNBA player Simone Edwards, bringing year-round educational support, self-esteem, mentoring and anti-bullying programs to underprivileged children in Jamaica.
I’ll never forget the how it felt growing up in an impoverished gang-infested village in Kingston, Jamaica. It was like being stuck with no hope for the future. Then something magical happened. I was offered a full college scholarship in America, if I learned how to play basketball. A sport I never even heard of. In Kingston, I found my love for basketball; but more importantly, it’s where I was adamant to learn the sport in hopes to return to give back to this country.
