EDEN, JAMAICA

Without the selfless dedication of the staff of Jamaican Christian School for the Deaf, hundreds of children with a variety of special needs would not receive the education they need.

For over 15 years, Mission Discovery has partnered with JCSD by building essential facilities, giving one-on-one attention to students and assisting the JCSD staff.  Now you have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on these children by updating their classrooms, building additional classrooms, and building a vocational center that will provide life skills to older students preparing to join the Jamaican work force. Expand your awareness of what God is doing by visiting a children’s home and hosting a Vacation Bible School.

The last day of your mission trip is set aside for shopping and relaxing on Montego Bay’s Hip Strip!  It’s filled with festive shops and is the location of Doctor’s Cave private beach where you’ll relax and unwind from your week of hard work.

Daily Work Assignments:

  • Mixing concrete
  • Painting
  • Various school repair projects
  • Local outreach to children through children’s Bible school
