play • imagine • change
The RKM Foundation was established in 2010 by Janeka Miller and Christine Allen, Jamaican-born sisters who live and work in the United States. It is named in honor of their brother Rohan Kiel Miller who died in a tragic accident at the age of ten.
Our memories of Rohan reflect his passion for life and how much he enjoyed dreaming, playing, imagining, and creating. The RKM Foundation honors his memory by focusing on children—empowering their imagination—to play and to create a brighter and more enlightened future, one child at a time.
We provide the resources for schoolchildren in rural Jamaica to dream—
and to imagine a future full of possibilities.
Each year, we partner with local educators and schools in the parishes of St. James and St. Elizabeth in Jamaica. We meet and share with students and educators to better understand the challenges the schools face and how we can continue to be a part of the solution. We get to see firsthand the joy of a child when they get to use their imagination to dream of bigger possibilities.
In our nine years of operation, we have successfully impacted over 10,981 students and 69 schools, and we have stocked ten community libraries with donated books, toys and school supplies. This is a grassroots mission that has been embedded into our soul.
Post it, tweet it, share it. The more people you tell, the more help we can receive.
We love to come and talk about our outreach and share our successes.
