WHO WE ARE

About INMED

INMED Partnerships for Children is an international nonprofit humanitarian organization founded by Dr. Linda Pfeiffer in 1986. The organization was established out of a desire to provide children with necessary medicines and medical care. Over the last 30 years, however, INMED has adapted to changing global needs and has responded by expanding services in the field to address the growing needs of children in the developing and underdeveloped world. INMED Caribbean was established to address the needs of food security, economic development, health, safety and education in Caribbean nations.

The effects of global climate change have been particularly devastating to Caribbean nations, which have been battered by storms, flooding, droughts and wildfires that have disrupted food security and caused significant economic impacts. INMED has worked in Jamaica since 2002, focusing on improving the health, education, safety and opportunities of the nation’s most vulnerable people through climate-smart agriculture and climate change adaptation, skills development and opportunities for sustainable livelihoods and self-reliance.

Our team at INMED Caribbean, officially incorporated as an NGO in Jamaica in 2010, is partnering with multilateral investment banks, universities, the private sector and the Government of Jamaica to provide technical and business training, access to financing, links to markets and other skills to help small-scale farmers, women and youth implement commercial and noncommercial aquaponics systems to improve food security, income-generating opportunities and climate change adaptation.

Our Partners

INMED’s vision is to transform the future of vulnerable children around the world. As our name suggests, we have not set out to do it alone. Working with a worldwide coalition of corporations, governments, and foundations, our programs have transformed the lives of millions of children and families across the globe. Our alliances with local and multinational partners create a strong foundation for children’s health and education, inspire communities to invest in their children’s futures, and create new opportunities for children to maximize their potential and achieve lifelong success.

Become a Partner

For too many children around the world, their hope for the future is not matched by opportunity. Facing poverty, poor health, lack of education and living in broken families and violent communities, a generation of children is at risk. INMED’s mission is to transform the future of vulnerable children today and for future generations by building pathways to achieve well-being and self-reliance. We do this by creating a continuity of care and support for healthy development from infancy to adulthood. The process of transformation that begins with a child carries over to his family and community, creating real, meaningful and sustainable change that crosses generations and breaks the cycle of poverty.

As our name suggests, we rely on partners to make our work possible. Our alliances with private- and public-sector partners–as well as individual donors–create a strong foundation for children’s health and education, inspire communities to invest in their children’s futures and generate new opportunities for children to fulfill their potential and achieve lifelong success.
