Since you’re here… ... we have a small favour to ask. Three years ago, we set out to transform the lives and daily living experiences of a small group of children with disabilities in Jamaica. Since that time, through our Jamaican counterpart, the Nathan Ebanks Foundation, we’ve led 3 national awareness/advocacy campaigns, trained over 300 teachers and childcare workers, mobilized 300 volunteers, placed more than 10,000 books in schools and early childhood institutions, so that over 2,500 children with disabilities will have access to screenings, intervention and learning to transform their lives - and the lives of their families!
While this is an incredible figure, there are still hundreds of children and families we haven’t been able to help yet. For us here at the Nathan Ebanks Children Advocacy Group, our mission to lift the standards of life for children with disabilities in Jamaica is unending. In pursuit of a fairer and more just world for these children, we support the Nathan Ebanks Foundation to advocate, educate, and work to rehabilitate in their name, every day.
The challenges these children face on a daily basis to access education, health and social supports are many. But the funding we need to carry out this work has been diminishing. So last year, we decided to seek an approach that would allow us to reach like-minded individuals like yourself who would like to make a difference in the life of a child with disabilities. We embarked on our first fundraising endeavours, and #Giving Tuesday played a big part in these efforts!
I’d like to take a moment to thank all who have joined the cause by supporting, donating, contributing and sponsorship. This is helping the Nathan Ebanks Foundation in overcoming the perilous financial situation we faced three years ago. Because of your support, we stand a fighting chance and our future and by extension the future of the children we serve is starting to look brighter. But we have to maintain and build on that level of support for every year to come.
This year, we will kick off our End of Year Campaign once again, by participating with over 33,000 organizations to celebrate #Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving. Mark your calendars for Tuesday November 27th, and support the Nathan Ebanks Children Advocacy Group/Nathan Ebanks Foundation. Your generous, tax-deductible donation will support programs that help us achieve our mission to bring much needed supports to these children in Jamaica, who deserve a brighter, more inclusive future. With your help – this future, a transformed future is possible…
