Who We Are

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.

Adaptive Agriculture/Aquaponics

As climate change increasingly threatens the food security and livelihoods of millions of people in the Caribbean, INMED sees adaptive agriculture and aquaponics as key solutions for resilience and economic security. Through its Adaptive Agriculture Program, INMED Partnerships for Children and INMED Caribbean are dedicated to establishing sustainable food programs that improve food security, conserve natural resources, promote strategies for adaptation to climate change, provide opportunities for income generation, and inspire this generation of farmers and fishermen and the next.

Financing for Aquaponics

INMED recently launched an exciting new “Increasing Access to Climate-Smart Agriculture” program that involves a pre-qualification component (online training modules covering training in the technical aspects of aquaponics, financing/loans and business/marketing) and is comprised of a loan package through local financial institutions (Credit Unions, Financial Institutions and the Development Bank of Jamaica) coupled with private sector contracted markets, INMED seeks to enable Jamaican farmers to pursue entrepreneurship opportunities in aquaponics and improve the agricultural sector’s resilience to climate change impacts in the long term.
