Our Vision, Mission and Values

Our vision

Our vision is to see all children, regardless of abilities or challenges they may face, given the opportunity to develop, thrive, learn and uncover their own unique gifts, thus fulfilling their fundamental human right to live a dignified life with the freedom and autonomy to achieve their optimal potential and lead productive and happy lives.

Our mission

Our mission is to transform the social and educational landscape of Jamaica by supporting the holistic development, health, education and overall quality of life for children and youths with disabilities and other special needs (the primary beneficiaries).

Our values

At the heart of the NEF are the people: children, parents, employees, volunteers and everyone supportive of our work. We stand strong, united by the common values of love, integrity, inclusion, commitment, accountability, respect and empowerment.
