Books4Kids Jamaica receives no grants from government bodies and raises funds to purchase books for the children on an annual basis. Our sponsor’s contributions are truly making a difference, and have been critical to making our book distributions a reality. Books4Kids Jamaica wishes to thank the many corporate and individual sponsors who have helped make our book distributions possible through donations of money, goods and services.
