A solid foundation in education will expand childrens opportunities so they may reach their full potential as unique human beings and create an improved and sustainable quality of life in the Caribbean and developing nations.
The Caribbean Education Foundation is established on the principles in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, UN Declaration of Human Rights. CEF believes education is the cornerstone to choice and opportunity for all people.
CEF operates the following programs to meet its mission.

• Mentoring Program: For ongoing support of CEF scholars
• Computer Literacy Program: To assist schools in obtaining computers for classroom instruction
CEF awards scholarships to children who are unable to attend school, because families are unable to pay school fees and other required school related costs. Our Student Scholarships pay school fees, purchase text books, school supplies, uniforms, meals and transportation.
