End Child Sex Abuse

$1,665 of $150,000 goal

Raised by 31 people in 41 months
Since January 2015 at least three girls under 15 years have lost their lives in circumstances related to sexual abuse in Jamaica. Two of the girls were confirmed pregnant and all three were murdered by the perpetrators of the abuse. There is a need for a greater understanding of the problem of sexual abuse, a recognition of the various forms it takes, and its impact on the thousands of girl children who suffer mental, physical and social damage as a result of this violation of their bodies and spirits.

"End Sex with the Girl Child" The NUH GUH DEH - Diaspora here in the USA will align its key outcomes to those of NUH GUH DEH - Jamaica, which includes bringing awareness and urging a zero tolerance approach to the abuse of children by:

1.        Increasing awareness about the long term physical, emotional, health, financial and social consequences of sexual abuse of young girls and boys

2.         Mobilizing communities to report acts of sexual violence against children

3.         Encouraging Jamaicans to use the phrase “Nuh Guh Deh!” to challenge current behaviors of men who sexually exploit children.

Why Funds are Needed
The NUH GUH DEH project is a multimedia communication campaign that combines life skills, gender and sexual and reproductive health, person-to-person and community interactions around sex with girls. Funds are needed to support the campaign which plans to use a multi-pronged approach, combining empowerment sessions/training, community outreach, peer-to-peer mentoring within the school system, mass media in the area of sex-offenders and community interactions. 

The "NUH GUH DEH" – Jamaica Campaign is administered by EVE and is supported by United Nations (UN) agencies including UNFPA, UNICEF, UNDP, UNAIDS, UNESCO, and UN Women. 

The “NUH GUH DEH” – Diaspora Campaign is administered by a JIFFD local task force, has the endorsement of the Consul General of Jamaica to Miami and is supported by local and national initiatives across the USA.

South Florida: PROTECT THEM project is the US umbrella of the Eve for Life Nuh Guh Deh Campaign.

Project Them objectives is to raise global awareness for the protection of children from increasing sexual abuse and its ramifications.

The Diaspora NUH GUH DEH Campaign is working to ensure a cohesive effort in combating child sex abuse in the local and international community. As members of the Diaspora began to understand some of the systemic and social issues around preventing the rape and molestation of our children, it was quickly recognized that leadership and financial support are critical factors in reducing these incidents; hence The ‘Protect Them’ Gala. Protect Them is intended to convene and mobilize leaders to raise funds for ongoing initiatives to support victims and educate communities. Donate Now!

Eve for Life Facing Closure


Between January and December 2015, 103 young mothers aged 12 – 24 were being mentored and guided by 20 Mentor Moms and eight Life coaches (older HIV+ mothers).

114 children aged 0 – 16 years old received social and educational support as part of the program.
Over 80 HIV group education sessions were held at hospitals in Kingston, St. Catherine, St. Ann, St. James and Westmoreland parishes

15,236 repeat attendees (female) reached at antenatal clinics in five parishes (Kingston, St. Catherine, St. Ann, St. James and Westmoreland).
Psychosocial support addressed the underlying and unique needs of the young mothers and enabled them to respond adequately to the stress of being infected. They are thus less likely to develop serious mental health problems (we know mental health is another huge area of concern in our society that requires much more attention than it currently receives).

15 beneficiaries received grants to start their own business;

35 adolescent girls accessed educational and vocational opportunities;

75 families with at least two children under 16 years old benefitted from educational support including school fees, text books, stationery, lunch, travel support and school uniform;

Four clients received housing support in 2015;
There was strong evidence of improvement in self-esteem and self-efficacy to engage in self-protective behaviors.
