Our History

Our History


 Pamela M. Ajayi and Georgia M. Barnes, started the Alice Givens Jones Foundation in honor of their mother and grandmother Alice, a former nurse who had become visually impaired at the age of 58. Alice had a vision to help others as she felt blessed. Georgia believes that education is the gateway to affording visually impaired people the same opportunities as their counterparts.

Alice Givens Jones, Pam’s mother and Georgia’s grandmother, lost her sight and mobility in 1994. These setbacks did not deter her from assisting others who were also visually impaired. Founded in 2009, the AGJFoundation strives to solicit funds in an effort to provide scholarships and resources for visually impaired college students.
