Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf (JCSD)

We, at Deaf Fellowship, partner with American Ministries to the Deaf (AMD) in supporting the Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf, which is located on the hills of St. James in Jamaica.  Because there are very few services for children who are deaf and hard of hearing and even fewer resources for their families, who are often very poor, JCSD is one of several schools that strive to educate deaf and hard of hearing children, as well as children with other disabilities. 

*Provides education for deaf and hard of hearing children from preschool up to 21 years using sign language as the main language of instruction
*Gives a faith-based education by encouraging each student to develop a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ
*Offers a safe and clean place for deaf students to socialize, learn, eat and sleep.
*Depends heavily on donations from churches like ours to keep their classes going, their staff well-supported and their facilities up-to-date.
*Has a neat and exciting project in the works – a new preschool building that will educate and house JCSD’s youngest learners!


 


American Belarussian Relief Organization (ABRO)

ABRO LogoThe American Belarussian Relief Organization (ABRO) is another global mission we support, not just financially, but wholeheartedly, by welcoming deaf children from orphanages in Belarus to come and live with us for 6 weeks each summer. During these 6 weeks, these deaf children are shown God’s abundant love, and also receive much needed medical, audiological, dental and many other kinds of services needed to help them grow physically and emotionally.  ABRO also serves hearing children who are orphaned and we work with the FCOB Global Missions Team on maintaining this wonderful mission.    For more information on the ABRO Organization visit their website.
