JIT reached out to this family and took on the responsibility to cover her educational and travel expenses on a monthly basis till October 2021. Furthermore, JIT will also assist in the process of finding her medical advice if her disability, could be operated on for a successful result.


This was the first project, that came from a home in distress, into our purview for assistance.

‘Today a Reader-Tomorrow a Leader’

Working to create a better future every day for our country’s children is a cause JIT is passionate about. We want to inculcate and encourage the habit of reading for children across the island, thereby playing our part in shaping well rounded individuals for the future.

Our Reading Corner CSR project ‘Today a Reader – Tomorrow A Leader’ was implemented to create mini libraries and reading spaces for children that are conducive to encourage children into the wonderful habit of reading.

As our 20th year milestone, we decided to fund and launch 20 libraries and reading corners in orphanages and rural schools. This project was completed in March 2018.
