Jamaican Heros and Role Models: Nikiki T. Bogle

developer October 26, 2013 10

Nikiki T. Bogle is a Jamaican hero and role model because of her work championing education in the island and for her many accomplishments in business and the legal profession. Her early childhood years were spent in Kingston Jamaica where she attended St. Hugh’s High School. She eventually migrated to the United States where she now works as managing partner at law firm Bogle & Chang, LLC.

The Caribbean Education Foundation (“CEF”) was founded in 2007 by Nikiki T. Bogle. The organization has done work to address three education issues in Jamaica: (1) many smart children pass the high school entrance exams but are unable to attend because their families lack the necessary funds; (2) the learning of many students is hampered by poor nutrition; and (3) schools do not have computers necessary for classroom instruction.

The issues being tackled by Nikiki T. Bogle through her leadership of CEF are vital to the future of Jamaica. Many thousands of students in the island at the grade nine level cannot read, overall attendance at school is poor and few secondary school graduates are qualified for a job or to enter tertiary education institutions.

Each year her organization provides scholarships to needy students. This year is no different and the CEF is presently on a drive to fund the education of 30 students. You can support the drive by going to http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/send-a-poor-child-to-high-school-in-jamaica/ and making a donation. In addition to scholarships, CEF provides meal grants to students and donates computers to schools in Jamaica.

One recipient of a CEF scholarship is Ravorn Campbell who attends Calabar High School. His family lives in Riverton City as squatters in a landfill. His education represents hope that there can be better days for himself and his family. The efforts of the organization have also created opportunities for many other children with similar stories of hardship.

In 2011 the work of Nikiki T. Bogle was recognized when she was awarded a New York State Assembly Citation by Bronx Assemblyman, Hon. Eric Stevenson. The award was partly based on her work in helping poor children in Jamaica to receive a good education.

Under the stewardship of Nikiki T. Bogle, CEF plans to expand its education programs into other Caribbean and developing nations.
