R.O.C. Jamaica Launches Scholarship Programme . . .

 . . . allowing sanchaDESIGNS to design another successful website.

On April 12, 2013 – the REACH ONE CHILD website was launched.

The foundation is the brainchild of actress/singer and philanthropist Cherine. R.O.C was formed to organize a benefit concert at Middlebury College to help victims of Hurricane Ivan in Jamaica. Both professors, students and professionals from the college and adjoining communities came together to support the cause in Mead Chapel. Originally Cherine’s intention was to help refurbish the music department of her alma mater Excelsior Primary but support was also given to the St. Ann’s Infirmary. The movement was expanded to help Jamaican youths all over the island with the help of her manager/business partner Patrick Lindsay, which gave birth to Reach One Child Jamaica.

In a recent interview Co-Founder of Reach One Child Jamaica Mr. Patrick Lindsay shared “We believe the best opportunity for our young people is through a solid education and while we cannot assist everyone, we are trying to do our part to better enable a good education for some of our motivated students. R.O.C Jamaica has been supporting administrators through our school tours which have been well received over the years, so we are just moving forward through our new scholarship initiative to further our support.”

Dancehall-Soul artist and Co-founder of R.O.C. Jamaica Cherine added, “The idea of helping students isn’t new to us. We’ve been giving aid and supplies to students for more than 8 years without any fanfare. I am fortunate to reach and teach a lot of people through my music but I am a huge advocate of school and education, it’s a solid foundation and we do have some of the best and brightest students right here in Jamaica.”
