Have you ever wanted to help Jamaica but never knew how to make a significant impact?
Money remittances have become Jamaica's main form of support. Although It is necessary in many cases, many of our loved ones have become dependent on it. The Idea of not working and receiving money can cause people to become inactive and idle. In most cases, crime increases when people have nothing to do. Let's create opportunities for youth who need it most, a whole generation is at stake!
It's time to rebuild agriculture one community at a time by "teaching people how to fish, instead of giving them the fish".
Whole farming communities lay dormant simply because farming has lost its appeal due to lack of education, assistance, inspiration and funds needed to kickstart farming projects.
The program is designed to identify food production shortages within each parish and then to grow those crops organically, making each parish and its communities, self sufficient. The order of assistance is based on the amount of funds raised by each parish.
Make a recurring monthly donation to your favorite parish's fund and invite at least (3) more friends or family members to do the same.
100% of funds raised will go toward the rebuilding of agriculture within the parishes.
