The Get Kids to School (GKTS) Program in Negril, Jamaica fully sponsored 72 children last year making it possible for children to attend school every day.
Without the support of Franciscan benefactors and friends, many of these children would not have this opportunity for an education. "We have to try. We are the only chance some of these kids will ever have of rising above this poverty", says Fr. Jim Bok, OFM.

Fr. Jim Bok, OFM, at St. Anthony's Kitchen
Dad was as honest as the day is long. He never tolerated unkind or pejorative words about anyone else regardless of race, creed or station in life. Everyone was his equal-respectful to all. In his early sixties cancer resulted in the removal of his bladder. No complaint or cross word. Around age seventy he was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), a horrible, debilitating disease. As he lost the ability to walk, to speak, to use his arms, to eat and swallow and eventually to breathe he was never angry with God or any of us. He accepted his illness with patience. May I die with such gracefulness ad graciousness.
