‘Stand up! Speak Out! Protect the Rights of Our Children’

    JN Group

    Child Month 2024 was celebrated under the theme, Stand up! Speak Out! Protect the Rights of Our Children and The Jamaica National Group facilitated and participated in several activities to commemorate this year’s occasion.

    JN Bank partnered with the National Child Month Committee (NCMC), donating $100,000 towards their activities for the month-long celebration. Beginning on May 7, which was celebrated as Read Across Jamaica Day, employees across the Group visited several schools around Jamaica to read to and engage students. ‘Cash Kidd’, the mascot for the JN School Savers Programme, made a surprise visit to Davis Primary and Infant School in Old Harbour, St Catherine, along with our partners, Sangster’s Book Stores, for Read Across Jamaica Day, which also doubled as their Banking Day. On Banking Day students can open accounts and immerse in financial literacy sessions. JN Bank also hosted Banking Day for several other schools, and for wards of the Maxfield Park Children’s Home in St Andrew. While wards of the SOS Children’s Village benefited from a Career Day.

    For a second, consecutive year, Managing Director of JN Bank, Leesa Kow, hosted an engaging rap session with students, including the top two National Spelling Bee finalists for 2024, JN Scholars, JN WAY ambassadors, on the topic, “Giving our Children a Voice.” Watch [here]

    A panel discussion was also held on May 31, under the theme Protecting our Children. Participants included representatives from the NCMC, SOS Children’s Village, JN Bank and JN Foundation.
