The Women’s Centre Programme for Adolescent Mothers was established in 1978 in response to the high level of teenage pregnancy experienced by the country. In 1991, the Programme gained Foundation status, thus being named the Women’s Centre of Jamaica Foundation (WCJF). The organization operates as a Limited Liability Company under the auspices of a government ministry; presently the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport. Initially, there was one centre located at 42 Trafalgar Road, Kingston 10. The Foundation has since expanded to include 7 main centres and 11 outreach stations, island wide.
Outreach stations operate under the supervision of a main centre, and usually, do not deliver the full slate of the activities of the Programme for Adolescent Mothers. Steps are currently being taken to remedy this inequity. Nonetheless, the island wide expanse of the WCJF locations, ensures ease of access to either a main centre or its outreach station, which is usually in the adjoining parish.
The Foundatio’s Programme for Adolescent Mothers is the core of the activities of the Foundation. The mandate of the WCJF therefore, is to provide continuing education for girls who drop out of school on account of a pregnancy. Since inception, the WCJF has assisted 46,989 adolescent mothers.
The Women’s Centre of Jamaica Foundation registers its endorsement of the None in Three research project that focuses attention on the subject of Gender Based Violence, with a view to influence change.
