The ETF programme provides scholarships to children in need, within the high risk age group of 12 to 18 years, who reside in communities situated in the five police divisions comprising Area 4 – Kingston Eastern, Central, and Western, and St Andrew Central and South. The overall vision of the programme is to provide better educational opportunities to the vulnerable children in Area 4, aimed at reducing school dropouts and rewarding hard work.
JNGI has been a proud sponsor for the past three (3) years and over 1,000 students have received scholarships in recognition of their creditable academic performances.

JNGI has been sponsoring this event for more than twelve years with the main objective of building environment awareness and assisting in improving waste management practices thereby reducing the impacts of debris on coastal ecosystems.
