Who we are

Nathan with his friends on the beachThe Nathan Ebanks Foundation® (NEF) is a registered Jamaican non-profit organization which works for the inclusion, participation and empowerment of children with disabilities and special education in Jamaica.

The NEF was founded in 2007 by two parents, in honour of their son Nathan who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of nine months.

With offices in Kingston, Jamaica, the NEF carries out its  work through a team of local and international volunteers. Its programmes include advocacy, public education, training/capacity development and rehabilitation support to parents, caregivers, policy-makers and others, to help address the problems faced by the children,  and to help to improve the level of daily care and education for children.
