Empowering Jamaican families for over 20 years.

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.

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.

The Agency has been committed to changing lives for over 20 years.
The Youth Wellness Center allows many young Jamaicans to learn a skill, free of cost.
The Bashy Bus Kru educates through entertainment across the island.

We are here to help
