How We Make A Difference
Your donation helps the Lynne Mitchell Foundation provide back packs and school supplies, school lunches, transportation and scholarships to underprivileged students, and make improvements to the dilapidated school infrastructure. Our charity is making a significant difference in the lives of the children and families that we serve.
Since 2013 we have donated over 800 Back Packs filled with School Supplies to students at Seaview Primary School. Your donation helps us to continue to put a smile on the faces of these students at the beginning of their new school year.
Our scholarship program currently provides financial assistance to 12 students, 2 in college and the remainder in high school. Our scholarships fund the cost of transportation, uniforms, books, school fees and expenses. Your donation helps us to help them work towards a better future for themselves and their families. Each scholarship is worth at least $3,000 U.S. Dollars per student.
As of December 2014, the students at Seaview Primary no longer have to get buckets to catch the water that flooded their school house when it rained because of the old and leaking roof. This is the first time the roof has been replaced in the school's 55 year history.
Fresh New Paint
This past summer we painted the interior and exterior of Seaview Primary School. The kids were excited to return to a bright and cheerful classroom.
New Windows and Doors
In the Spring of 2014 we replaced all the windows and doors at Seaview Primary School. It was time for the broken windows and doors to go.
Seaview Infant School opened its doors in January 2013 to preschoolers. With just dirt at the front of the school, the children were in need of a playground. Thanks to the Lynne Mitchell Foundation, the students received a new playground complete with swings, a slide, a rock climbing wall, monkey bars, and a clubhouse to help keep them active and entertained.

Natanya will attend St. Elizabeth Technical High School, Lexon will attend Monroe College and Yaneque will attend Hampton High School for Girls.
