SEPROD FOUNDATION providing scholarships for over 30 years
Seprod Foundation has been providing scholarships for over 30 years and most recently began to play a role in bringing innovative experiences to children in Jamaica. Major projects include the World Robot Olympiad, the Hour of Code, Jamaican Girls Coding, Scratch Day and professional development opportunities for teachers in technology. We have supported social interventions such as the National Youth Orchestra and Freedom Skatepark, providing opportunities for young people to engage with sport and music. We believe these investments in the human capital of Jamaica will not only inspire more careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, but also equip our country for a more rewarding future.
