Western Society For The Upliftment Of Children
The Western Society for the Upliftment of Children seeks to develop a sustainable programme that will assist the marginalized youth of the community to achieve their full potential: physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.
The organization offers up-to-date numeracy and literacy modules along with Sewing, Craft, Carpentry and Electrical Installation as part of their pre-vocational areas. Addition Interior Decorating, Barbering, Information Technology, Cosmetology and Videography are offered as part of the special evening program.
April 1, 1997 marked the transformation of the Montego Bay's Save the Children Fund's (U.K.) Marginalized Youth Project to Western Society for the Upliftment of Children. The original project began in January 1990, in response to the growing concern for the increasing number of children falling out of the school system and ending up on the streets.
