At JAFABJ we believe that with enough determination anything is possible. We believe that education and the opportunity to expand our mental capacities is a human right. We believe that every child should have access to education and that no child should be barred from reaching their full potential. Our goal is to help children forge paths to their future through combating financial barriers to education and encouraging them to believe that there are no limits on our dreams. The Moving Mountains Scholarship will be presented each year to students for whom the financial burden of school fees creates a barrier to pursuing education.

“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” -Malcolm X
