Happy Portrait


Stacy-Ann Wilson is a social entrepreneur and the founder of ODEM Foundation. She has always had a passion for giving back to communities in need. Her "giving back" came in various forms, such as donating funds, books, and clothing to needy individuals, including partnering with organizations to bring about change through social interventions. Having been raised in a single-parent home in Waterhouse, an inner-city community in Jamaica, Mrs Wilson has first-hand experiences of the various pitfalls that have inundated many individuals in these communities.

This experience gave her the vision and passion for contributing to a better world with brighter futures, starting right in her home community. Therefore ODEM Foundation was initially formed to work with groups in the Waterhouse community and became formalized in 2017. Since then, the organization has widened its scope to include various social intervention programmes supporting SDG goals 1, 4, 5, and 11 and aligning with activism for three causes - ending GBV, poverty, and women empowerment. ODEM Foundation's goals and objectives derive directly from her passion for tackling issues that individuals in Jamaica and worldwide face. Problems that systematically create difficult situations for people and unfairly disadvantage them.
