Abstract: Hope for Children has especially been concentrating on raising awareness of one particularly important provision of the Child Care and Protection Act 2004, which makes it mandatory to report incidence of child abuse. When there is suspicion or evidence that children are being abused, teachers are now mandated by law to report this. We have partnered with the Jamaica Coalition on the Rights of the Child and 30 early childhood education institutions affiliated to the South West St Andrew Association of Basic Schools to support this mandatory reporting.
