STOP CHILD ABUSE IN JAMAICA!


A Call To Action To Stop Child Abuse IN Jamaica.

Event took place on May 15, 2015, at Independence Park, Savanna-La-Mar in Westmoreland.

JDEP, Inc. represented the Deaf Community, in Jamaica, to show that children with disabilities are abused as well, and these abuses are kept Silent. Why? One reason is due to the fact that families are not educated about their hearing impaired child and therefore have limited communication with such child. This is why the JDEP team is dedicated to the business of children and we hope you can Stand Against Child Abuse Too.

TAKE THE “DEAF FOR A DAY” 2015 CHALLENGE!!


I tried to be “Deaf for a Day”…it is HARD, especially since I am still learning sign language. So, imagine if I as an adult got frustrated, what say a deaf child, who still needs help to attend school just to live a normal life. So, it is fair to say I did not complete the challenge, I had to donate. I have a lot of love and respect to all the deaf children out there. #Deafforaday #jdep.org #takethedeafforadaychallenge

Oh so adorable…Angie is adjusting nicely at her new school. She is friendly and already made tons of friends. Her dorm mother just loves and comforts her at night when Angie starts to miss her mommy. Angie’s mom visits regularly and misses her as well.

Niks’ Diary


Day Two

No matter how down I may be feeling when I get back to England looking at the pictures of these children will bring a smile on my face. I didn’t think I had it in me .. to go all the way across the other side of the world and give my time to these amazing children. My time here will soon be up feels like I’ve fallen in love with each and every one of these children. I’m so proud of myself , and at some point in my life I’ll be able to change the life of the children in Jamaica permanently. This is just the beginning.

Niks’ Diary


Day One

last night was my first night and I was absolutely scared , but to see the smile on those children’s face when they saw me arrive yesterday was priceless. I hope I can help them as much as I can. So this is my home for the next few days.
