Through collaboration and sponsorship by Colgate’s dental education program, Bright Smiles, Bright Futures, The Links, Incorporated has improved students’ oral hygiene by providing on site dental exams to the children at all three schools. Support from sponsor AARP has also enabled members to finance and implement resource specialists to the educators who are focusing on teaching enhanced reading, writing and math practices.
While our aim has been to extend helping hands of friendship and service to those with whom we interact and connect with in Jamaica, this trip is one of mutual transformation. Our members are so excited about the opportunity to return to share and enjoy an experience that is as meaningful to us as it is to our Jamaican colleagues. Our hands-on involvement with students and teachers allows us to give to those who may benefit from our resources. It also enables us to live out the mission of our organization in real time. We look forward to making a difference in the lives of our children, who are our future, on the beautiful island nation of Jamaica. –Dr. Newell-Harris.
