WHO WE ARE

The Trelawny Diabetes Management Project (TDMP) is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to prevention, education, and management of diabetes in Jamaica.

WHAT WE DO
  • We teach individuals to manage their diabetes through education, healthy eating, and increased physical activities.
  • We provide healthy food and sports equipment for physical activities for three schools.
  • Through a partnership with the University of Minnesota, we conducted child nutritional assessments, and educational seminars for principals on sustainably developing access to food.
  • Developed a plan to establish a schoolyard farming project as a strategy to improve food security, providing adequate healthy food for primary school children in the area.
THE NEXT STEP
  • Plan to provide schoolyard farms for four primary schools. These include the Wakefield Primary School, Unity (Bunkers Hill) Primary School, Hastings (Deeside) Primary School and Bounty Hall Primary School. The farms will be located on the schoolyards of all four school with each school specializing in products as determined by each school. We will raise chickens, vegetables and fruits. The products will serve as food for the plate as well as excess to be sold for additional food items such as dairy products, breads, spices, etc.
  • We plan to start construction of the coops early 2019.
WHAT WE NEED
  • Your prayers for the success of this project.
  • Money for construction of the coops, equipment for the coops, purchasing of the birds, feed, manual labor to assist in the maintenance of coops. 
  • Financial and technical assistance to use rainwater collection and solar energy to minimize the impact on the environment.
  • Purchase refrigerators for eggs and freezers for the meat.
  • Funds to hire someone to assist in developing marketing for the products from the farm and a marketing/management program among the older children in the schools.
