ACMF Scholarship Recipients shout out
ACMF scholarship recipients are studying online.
Listen to a “shout out” from a couple of them.
Shante Pearson (Bahamas)
Glenardo Simpson (Jamaica)
CREATIVITY. INNOVATION. RESILIENCE.
Firstly, I hope that you are all doing well and coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. I am inspired by, and grateful for, the heroism of front line workers, hospital cleaners, transportation workers, grocery store staff, medical professionals, and those who have, in no uncertain terms, put themselves in harm’s way to serve the public and save lives. Incredible!!!

The COVID-19 pandemic, among other things, brings to mind, Bob Dylan’s iconic song, “The Times They Are A-Changin'”. The new landscape for non-profits will reward creativity and resilience—skills and traits that are at the heart of human evolution.

We are all in this together. Three traits keep coming to my mind: Creativity, Innovation, Resilience, and all our organizations will need a good dose of each in order to move forward.
Behind the Scenes
The ACMF is focused on reducing the impact of the pandemic on our scholarship recipients and ensuring that we are able to keep our commitment to our current batch of scholarship recipients.

We are also learning new ways of achieving our mission of alleviating poverty and transform lives in the Caribbean through maritime education and community development.

We can’t thank you enough for your support.
