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 Foundation honors his memory by focusing on children—empowering their imagination—to play and to create a brighter and more enlightened future. One child, one toy, one book at a time.
Our international Board of Directors collects gently used toys, books, and school supplies,
and delivers them directly to underprivileged schoolchildren in St. James and Elizabeth Parish in
Jamaica. We help the schools establish reading initiatives and school libraries.
