Windsor Lodge

Since 1972, The Windsor Lodge Children's Home has been nurturing and making a difference in the lives of thousands of children from all across Jamaica. The mission of The Home is to provide for children physically, spiritually and mentally. The children at The Home are mostly from sexually or physically abusive homes that experience social, behavioural as well as learning challenges. They are in desperate need of love, care, protection and guidance. The Windsor Lodge Children's Home provides all this and more and is a safe haven for all the children at The Home.

The Windsor Lodge Children's Home is located in Windsor Lodge residential area in Manchester. The Home currently provides a safe home for sixty-one children, babies to age eighteen years. However, the Home still provides maintenance and care for those over eighteen until they have finished college and is equipped sufficiently to leave the Home. We are currently assisting one child, Andre Poyser, who is attending the University of the West Indies, Mona. He is currently studying Media and Communication and is in his second year of school.

The Home has three major projects:

1. The Windsor Baby Land

The Windsor Baby Land opened its doors to abandoned and orphaned babies on June 25, 2010. The mission of the Baby Land is to care for and give hope with the Love of God to the hopeless, abandoned and destitute babies. The Baby Land currently has fourteen babies and hopefully we will be able to expand and get even more babies. The Baby Land cares for babies from the age of 1 day old upwards to 4 years of age. They are many abandoned and orphaned babies in Jamaica. We are dedicated to providing these children the love, security, medical care and education they need. We provide them with a Home.

The Baby Land is currently the most expensive project of the Windsor Lodge Children's Home as diapers and other baby supplies have to be bought on a regular basis.

2. After School Programme

The children brought to the home face learning challenges because of various reasons and is unable to keep up with other children their age in normal public school. The after school programme provides the children with the individual attention that they need in terms of Mathematics, English and Information Technology.

3. Home Exit Programme

The Home Exit Programme is a programme which helps the teenagers of the Home prepare for when they leave the Home (There are currently 16 teenagers at the Home). At the age of eighteen, the government/Child Development Agency is no longer responsible for them. Therefore, the Home finds it necessary to equips them with the necessary tools that will help them to be succesful when they do leave.

The "exit" programme incorporates different aspects, such as

  • Each child has their own room and bathroom, which allows them to be cultured to somewhat living on their own
  • The after-school programme
  • The Home has implemented its own skills training programme will provide the teenagers with skills that will complement their high school education and provide them with a more practical side of learning. The programme offers courses in Information Technology, Cooking and Cosmetology so as to teach a skill, which will increase the likelihood of them getting a job when they leave the Home. This programme will give them more options when they enter the workforce. They can use these skills as a means of making a living or pursue it as a hobby in the long run. The skills training center began in 2008, however the cosmetology was added September 2011. We have partnered with Heart Trust NTA so that upon completion of the programme, the teenagers will receive proper certification.
