Canada-based reggae artiste, Tasha T recently completed at whirlwind tour of select school in Jamaica as the official ambassador of Read Across Jamaica (RAJ).

As the  RAJ  Musical  Ambassador  for  2011 & 2012,  Tasha  T, through  her  musical  style  of   communication,  will  lend  her  talent  to  encourage  families  to  approach  literacy  from  a  positive  perspective.

According to Tasha,  “Determination  and  drive  are the key ingredients that parents must have in order to assist their children to climb  the ladder  of  education.”

She continued, “We  [artists]  must  make  the  effort  to  engage  our  youth  in  activities  to  feed  their  minds,   nurture  their  growth  and  display  enjoyment  with  various  forms  of  the  arts.”

Tasha  T  has  voiced  her  full   endorsement  of  RAJ’s   project  her  latest  release,  Educate  Yourself, which is the official theme song of the project.

During November 10 – 12, Tasha T and the members of RAJ visited the Cassava  Piece Activity Centre, St Andrew;  St.  James  Parish  Library in Montego  Bay, the Henningay Prep School  and the Breadnut Hill  Primary  School,  St.  Ann.

“It was wonderful,” a beaming Tasha T said of the visits, where she performed, interacted with the children and handed out pictures and reading material.

Project co-ordinators Gavin Palmer and Hopeton Brown said they were more than pleased at their three days of activities and happy for the opportunity to engage with students and parents and spread the knowledge.

The team will be back in Jamaica early next year for another phase of the Read Across Jamaica project.
