Each year, Rochester Jamaican Organization chooses a beneficiary to support. In 2015, 2016,and 2017, the beneficiary was The Theodora Project.
Shared Hope International is a Washington, DC-based organization involved in ending human-trafficking worldwide. Shared Hope provided funds to build a school — The Theodora Project —in Jamaica in response to the human- trafficking problem. The school provides critical skills to sexually exploited and at-risk youth who have dropped out of the school system.
One year after Shared Hope International constructed the school, the organization funded the construction of the “Theodora Safe House” to house girls who have been sexually exploited and at-risk of human trafficking. The house provides a safe environment for the girls while they attend school and also provides personal and social development support.
