The Cassandra Learning Centre (CLC) was founded in memory of Cassandra McDermott.
From the depth of immeasurable grief family and friends got together and created the Cassandra Learning Centre in her memory so that other young people could be protected from such fate.
Our efforts are to raise awareness and educate young people (male and female) about how to identify and tackle domestic and sexual abuse. CLC is also registered to work in Jamaica.
