THE JEGGAN COLE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION

The Jeggan Cole Memorial Foundation is a registered charity organization founded in November 2014 and based in The Gambia. The Foundation aims to provide educational support to needy and deserving students in upper basic and senior secondary schools through its interrelated core programs: Scholarship, Mentorship and Service. Our goal is to help unleash the full potential of JCMF scholars for growth excellence and experience–building and become responsible citizens.

Jeggan Cole Memorial Foundation Scholarship Program

JCMF continues with its annual scholarship award program by awarding scholarships to twenty-three students. The package include school bills, book bills uniforms school supplies, bags, shoes and socks. Students welcomed the support with enthusiasm, gratitude and greater determination to work even harder.

JCMF supports needy students who otherwise would have dropped out of school or simply pass through with no educational impact but are now being given a reason to stay in school, dare to dream big and more importantly believe in the possibility of a better tomorrow.

In 2018/2019 academic year:

  • Five scholars made the honors roll
  • Three scholars were selected school councilor or prefect
  • One student was elected vice president of their student association executive body
  • Four students graduated from high school
  • Three graduates are currently enrolled in tertiary institutions
  • As part of JCMF support, scholars, volunteers, mentors and mentees were treated to a dinner aimed at strengthening relationships and honoring our scholars.

JCMF is proud of the achievements of our scholars!

We therefor take this opportunity to thank our donors this year and at the same time wish all our students well in the new academic year.

VISION

A Gambia, where vulnerable children in our communities have equal access to education and other facilities and infrastructure for optimal development.

MISSION

JCMF is committed to supporting the education of needy and deserving students through scholarship, while benefiting from mentoring and community service programs, unleashing their full potential.
