2017 Summer Reading Camp 

Literacy Development is an important aspect of our educational journey, which is oftentimes taken for granted. A strong foundation of literacy, sets a strong pathway for lifelong learning and sustainable development towards each goal on the 2030 vision. The Jamaica Intensive Reading Clinic is a registered non-profit organization that was conceptualized in 2012 to combat low literacy rate across Jamaica and the Caribbean region. Since its inception, the organization hosted two (2) all island Summer Reading Camps between 2016-2017 respectively. These camps were held in all parishes across Jamaica with eighteen centers.

 

The membership over the past two years consisted of eight hundred (800) volunteers including three hundred (300) trained teachers. Our partners were the Jamaica Information Service (JIS), Book Industry Association of Jamaica (BIAJ), Kiwanis club of Young Professionals western Jamaica, CB Chickens, Calvary Baptist Church, Spicy Hill Community Centre, University of the West Indies, I believe Initiative, Clarendon Primary School, Manchester High School, Sandals Foundation, Jamaica Foundation for Lifelong Learning, World Literacy Foundation, International Literacy Association, Spanish Town Primary School, Linstead Baptist Church, I Publish Consultancy, Lucea United Church, Clarendon Primary School, Buff Bay Primary School, Browns Town Baptist Church, Greater Portmore Baptist Church, Food for the Poor Jamaica, Phillipo Baptist Church, Beecham Hill Infant & Primary School, NextStepp and many others.
