NODM is a Charitable Organization
As a non-profit, we rely on the generosity of the public and our government and non-government partners for funding. We do meaningful work. We design programs that aid involuntary returned migrants (IRMs) rebuild their lives. Approximately 200 individuals are deported to Jamaica each year. Data out of Jamaica’s Ministry of National Security and Planning Institute of Jamaica shows that up to 50% of persons deported to Jamaica spent more than 15 years in the deporting country and have few family ties in Jamaica. IRMs have a lot to offer Jamaica and we have helped to write many success stories.
