Our Mission and Our Story
The mission of Heartbeats of the World ("HOW") is to enrich the lives of women, adolescents, and children in underserved areas of the world by providing medical resources and educational opportunities to address poverty, unemployment and the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases, and teenage pregnancy. Through prevention and training, we will diminish the impact of these conditions and improve lives.
Founded in 2002 by Dr. Karlene ChinQuee, Heartbeats of the World, Inc. evolved from a lifelong pursuit of humanitarian causes. When Dr. ChinQuee heard Maya Angelou speak about the problems in Jamaica and how people should feel empowered to do more to address them, she launched her own grassroots organization, and HOW transformed from an idea to a reality.
In 2008, two hurricanes rendered inoperable our principal school on the island of Jamaica. Teaching is now done at a temporary facility. HOW desperately needs funds to construct a new school building and to help us expand our teaching activities.
