Reaching out through


 School supplies bought and collected for our scholars in the Gambia. They are due to be shipped at the end of the August, 2018.

Family, friends and well wishers came together over a meal to raise funds and launched the Jeggan Cole Foundation. During the event friends remembered Jeggan during heart warming speeches jokes and there were also somber moments too. The need to carry on Jeggan’s dreams and keep his memory alive gave birth to the Foundation. The event was well attended.

JCMF donated medical supplies to the
general hospital in The Gambia.

In our maiden scholarship award ceremony, 30 students from various lower and upper basic schools in the greater Banjul area qualified for the Jeggan Cole Memorial Scholarship award and were successfully accepted into the mentorship program. Each scholar received text and exercise books, school bags, 2 sets of uniforms, pairs of shoes, school supplies and tuition paid for in full.

Since 2014 JCMF has successfully held 4 scholarship award ceremonies.
We also support orphanages and poor families the community.
