Who We Are

We are a unique community organization providing life changing programmes for children and adolescents.

 

Based in Spanish Town, Jamaica, Children First is Jamaica’s largest programme of this type, offering social, educational and training programmes for youngsters in the 10-24 age group while empowering their parents and guardians to overcome poverty and enhance daily life through successful skills training and small business projects.

 

Children First has been recognized at home and abroad for its creative, participatory approach, which ensures its young clients full involvement including decision-making at the Board of Directors level.

Our Mission

The Mission of Children First is to work with street, working and vulnerable children, to improve their life opportunities and enable their contribution to society, through active engagement with children and young people, their families, communities and institutions which affect their lives.

Our Vision

A Jamaica in which children are active participants in a country which respects, protects, and fulfils their rights to develop to their full potential, free from abuse and neglect.
