Cry for the Children

Our Mission

The Cry for the Children Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting inner-city school-aged children, living in Jamaica, who cannot afford the cost of going to school. Our goal is to provide funding for educational resources including textbooks, uniforms, school fees and meals. Our vision is to see a significant increase in the number of girls and boys who successfully complete their education. This will enable them to become productive adults who are well prepared to sustain, teach, and lead their communities for many years to come. Help educate a child today so we can all share a brighter tomorrow.

Our Inspiration

The Cry for the Children Foundation was started by Collin Grant, a singer/songwriter who grew up in inner-city Kingston, Jamaica. He knows, firsthand, the hardships faced  by the children who struggle, daily, to get the basic necessities of life.  After hearing about a mother who was unable to feed and send her children to school for several days at a time, Collin decided to take action. He founded the Cry for the Children organization in April of 2015. Since then, he has inspired others, who are committed to making a difference, to join the effort. We are looking forward to your involvement and support. Help educate a child today so we can all share a brighter tomorrow.
