I have the honor and blessing of knowing Shernet James and she is what makes One Love 4 Kids a successful and amazing nonprofit. Her hard work and determination result in putting smiles on the faces of children. Members of my church, Seneca Creek, joined with Shernet to have a day of service for children. We gave out stuffed animals, clothes and treats. We had a children's author read to the children. We had a crafts table where the kids could make their own bookmarks. It was a wonderful day of love and fun. What could be more important than making a difference in the life of a child. Hats off to Shernet!!!

Programs are carried out with limited recourses and financial support. Nevertheless, One Love 4 Kids strives to set a high standard of leadership as it continues to focus on the needs of the people and the positive impact being made in the lives of others and the world. One Love 4 Kids is about changing lives for the better. And the organizations’ education development programs, community outreach programs, and health programs have been doing so for over 6 years. Don’t believe me? Just our donors and recipients who have all benefited from being a part of a true Grassroots organization that works tirelessly to fulfill its mission on a daily basis What makes One Love 4 Kids special is that the organization considers it an honor to serve the people.

This non-profit organization goes far beyond its' expectations for the children of the community. The volunteers are amazing and so are the organizers...... They really care about the needs of the children including their educational, material and basic fundamental needs. All of the requirements to grow healthy and happy, well-balanced children are strived for and are lovingly met with the help of internal and outside donations. I love helping in any way I can.

As a board member, I have been with One Love 4 Kids since it's infancy.
I have seen both the progress and the challenges that we, as a organization,
have faced in helping our community both locally and abroad. Although we
have continue to face challenges, One Love 4 Kids has continued to offer supports to anyone with our limited resources.


OL4K prides itself on the our many charitable endeavors that we have embarked on. Our organization is one that believes that a healthy community is the best community. And as such, we continue to persevere through our most difficulty times. However, in order for us to continue doing our work, we well need both volunteers and additional funding.

With very limited funding, and volunteer help, OL4K continues to provides goods and services for various programs. The communities we serve greatly appreciate our contributions and we are very happy that we are able to provide help.

I had the pleasure of volunteering during a community literacy event organized by One Love 4 Kids. Families had the opportunity to meet an author and hear him read his books. Children made bookmarks, were given a book to take home, and participated in other fun activities designed to get them excited about reading. We were also excited to partner with our local community center, which hosted the afternoon. Job well done!

I am proud to be associated with One Love 4 Kids. I have seen this organization help so many people all year round. They have changed lives and empowered individuals. They have provided more than material items to those that come in contact with them. They have provided advice, security, self help skills for persons and overall just positive reinforcement. It is also awesome to see kids of all ages involved in giving back. Continue to do what you do best One Love 4 Kids organization.

I met the Founder and CEO of One Love 4 Kids, Inc. in 2010 when she volunteered to partner with me on a project. Shernet James and I partnered for the next four (4) years. Her organization, One Love 4 Kids, Inc. has helped me by providing funds for i) a nutrition program and ii) a sports program at a primary school in Jamaica. Some of the children also received personal effects, clothes, shoes etc.

With very limited funds, this organization has managed to host summer school programs for needy children. Volunteers and children were provided with lunch.

I am amazed now (as I was back then) as to how charitable, forward-thinking, tenacious and multi-faceted Shernet James is. She possesses a wealth of ideas on how to positively affect the lives of under-served and at-risk children globally.

One Love 4 Kids, Inc. has also provided tutoring services to children at no cost to families. Children were fed and instructed in spaces that were rented.

The efforts of this organization are thwarted by lack of funding. More volunteers are also needed.

I would love to see One Love 4 Kids, Inc. grow exponentially and reach more at-risk children.

I volunteer with One Love 4 Kids through their tutoring program. The students I tutor range from age 6 to 6th grade. What I like most is the joy that appears on a student's face when there is that 'aha' moment when a math concept finally makes sense. The frustration turns to joy. It warms the heart.

This organization has helped to transform the lives of children not only in the United States, but also internationally. Its grassroots efforts help to bring hope and inspiration to communities of children in need, as well as tangible resources that will impact their lives and continue to position them for success.

I have personally volunteered at a One Love 4Kids event, where I was afforded the opportunity to see firsthand of the joy that children received from being gifted with such necessities as clothing, shoes, books and more. This is the type of work that needs to be visible as well as celebrated!

As a result, One Love 4 Kids is always grateful for the hundreds of women, children and men who make it possible for us to be a small organization that is making a huge impact. Our donors and volunteers are the backbone of this organization and we could not have gotten this far without all of you. But there is still much more that One Love 4 Kids need in org to be successful. So please take the time to learn about our work and us. And as always, your support is appreciated and needed. As donations have continued to decrease, the need of the goods and services that we provide has remained high. As a result, we are always looking for additional ways to increase our funding as we continue to meet the needs of those who need our love and assistance. Join me in supporting One Love 4 Kids. We can change lives for the better. Shernet Dixon-James

I was able to see and experience first hand what the CASACO foundation did, I had volunteer with them at their annual Christmas treat in December 2010. The organizers and funders make sure that that every single child was fed and got their bag with goodies, which include book bags, pencils, crayons and other things that they were happy to have. Without this organization many of these children would not be able to have a clean pair of socks to put on Christmas day. I was happy to take some time out of my vacation to give a helping hand, if there were more organization like this one, that try to make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate this world would be a better place to live in, I have seen the shine in the children eyes and the smile on their faces. A job well done on that day.

As a teacher, I am well aware of the many challenges and needs children within the Jamaican society face on a daily basis. It is indeed a fact that many of our children would achieve more if they could get a strong foundation and ultimately a sound education. Unfortunately, many of our students miss out on these opportunities because of the lack of resources and financial stability. As such I must say that I really recognize the effort that One Love 4 Kids is making to fill the gaps as they strive to improve the lives of children within the Jamaican communities. They have taken a holistic approach in the overall development and well-being of our Jamaican youths-which I am sure, will scaffold the younger generation and the Jamaican society at large. One Love 4 kids your efforts are invaluable, keep up the good work.

Its always a pleasure to find time to give back, to anyone or anything,when then oppertunity came to be a voluteer for one love for kids i felt , blessed, honered and garteful to have returned to my community to give back. To give is to receive and thats what we do at one love for kids, we put a smile on a child face by just being present in these inner cities, we put a shoe on someones feet ,who might have been trodding the roads bare feet for decades, we allow all kids to go to school with supplies.These inner cities mark the dates to welcome us knowing full well , that they will be blessed somehow.Deuteronomy 15 vs 10 says give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the lord you god will bless you in all your work and everything you put your hand to.So here we an organization started by family funded by family giving in love and beleiving in faith for in to become bigger better and brighter. And receiving an abundant amount of gods blessing. I am HONOURED TO BE A volunteer.

I am tremendously pleased with the work that One Love 4 Kids foundation is doing for the children in Jamaica. OL4K provide children with the basic necessity they need to thrive and grow, such as school supplies, uniforms, meals, medical and monetary aide. One Love 4 Kids is an inspiring Non-Profit foundation that children in Jamaica depends on, and look forward to especially during the holidays and back to school. But what I am especially proud of is the compassion the Co-founder of OL4K has toward the children of Jamaica. Giving back to our community / country should always be an important part of our lives, but she has made it her life mission and that is inspiring. Thanks for all you do.

One Love 4 Kids has been a wonderful and very helpful nonprofit foundation that has helped many less fortunate children in Jamaica. It has given the children a better chance of having a well developed education and livelihood. For the period of time that One Love 4 Kids has been in action, it has left a good impression.

Drews Avenue Primary & Infant School is a beneficiary of the Charity of One Love for Kids Foundation. In December 2011, twenty five needy children were given gifts of school supplies and were also treated to lunch. In September 2012 for the start of the new school year these children were again blessed by the foundation. They received bags, shoes, items of clothing etc. Parents were extremely grateful and the faces of their children beamed happily. Great job One Love for Kids!

I have been working with One Love 4 Kids for 4 years and the organization has done an excellent job in organizating and putting of small to medium programs in poor volunerable communites, scholls and childrens homes. While doing the nonprofit work they do so well, the organization manage to keep close ties with the communites, schools and childrens homes that the organizstion help. As I see the future misssion of this organization, incontinueing to bulid on the foudation that it has established. By doing so, One Love 4 Kids will continue to serve the under served, poor and disenfranchised that so desperately need the help the organization provides.

I have been working with CASACO Foundation for over 3 years. The foundation provides clothing, school supplies, toiletries, wheel chairs and other goods services to impoverished communities, schools, and children homes. Each years the foundation hold christmas charity events in Jamaica, that brighten lives and make children and adults christmas enjoyable. Casaco also provide literacy services to under served communities such as the Top Range and Hampstead Park communites in Kingston Jamaica. These are services that the communities lack. Casaco does a wounderfull job with providing services to the needed and impoverished with supplies and services that are lacking and needed in the mentioned communities.

I am pleased to be a co-founder, volunteer and president at One Love 4 Kids - a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization serving children and families.


One Love 4 Kids (OL4K) is a small, but growing organization that has seen tremendous growth in the number of children, schools and families that it serves every year. Each year since 2007 OL4K has provided food, clothing, school supplies, health and career advice and much more to needy children and families in Jamaica. However, the great thing about OL4K is our volunteers' awareness that children are best understood within the context of their homes, families, schools, community and society. Consequently, OL4K utilizes an integrated (family, school, community…) approach as it aims to meet the education, health and economic needs of sick, disabled, abused and poor children in Jamaica.

You can make a difference by joining our group of caring board members and volunteers who make it possible for many children to develop in productive members of their families, communities, schools and society.
Thanks and One Love Always~

I was truly amazed and delighted at the great level of professionalism and dedication that drove One Love 4 Kids. The back to school drive was successful because of the leadership and motivation of Shernet Dixon. Under her leadership and the others involve in the organization, I expect the children will be the greatest benefactors.

I really love the goal and mission of this organization. I feel as though the organization is well needed in order to help students strive to become what they dream. As a student myself I know what it feels like to want something so bad but is hindered because of the lack of financial support within the family and community. Giving back to the community is the best way to directly evoke an effect among the youth. I am truly glad that the Carribean Student and Community Outreach Program has decided to take on this tremendous task in hopes of self betterment and higher education for those who seek it.

I was very happy to learn about the Caribbean Student and Community Outreach Program from my brother Michael and sister-in - law Shernet who are very active with with program. They have both traveled to the Caribbean to distribute school supplies to needy students. I feel this is a very worth while organization that is doing a great service to our brothers and sisters who are less fortunate than us. Keep up the good work.

Sincerely, Nicolas G. James

I am very pleased for all the work this charity has been doing for the past years. I am particular happy that disabled children are their number one priority. This has shown me that we should never lose hope in whatever we are doing. The love and support that this organisation has given to the less fortunate can only come from God.
May God continue to bless and strengthen the founders, volunteers, donors and anyone that has contributed to this cause.
Continue the excellent work you are doing, I am assured it is well received...
