New Jamaican Cultural Connection Assoc. In Orlando

The Jamaican Cultural Connection is an association founded by Claudette Bailey of Orlando , Florida in October 2010. The organization was started based on a need for Jamaicans to come together and help the poor and the destitute both here and in their native land. Pending a 501 (c) (3), the association is organized exclusively for charitable, religious and educational purposes. The slogan for the Jamaican Cultural Connection is: “Where Together We Build On Heritage.”

The mission of the Jamaican Cultural Connection is to empower Jamaicans to come together in cultural unity and connectivity to educate, train and build the Jamaican community; connecting them together physically, mentally and spiritually as one people working together for the good of all. As part of its mission, the association will also seek to aide the poor and the destitute. Connecting in education, health, social, business and community outreach programs will be a strong emphasis of the association.

Additionally, the vision is to connect skilled Jamaican personnel to other Jamaicans seeking training in specific areas, to support and help promote existing Jamaican owned businesses, to educate and train Jamaicans through workshops and seminars, as well as, show the love of God; to put back the pride of a proud people by giving without demeaning through knowledge, unity and love.

As Claudette Bailey, founder and president, of the Jamaican Cultural Connection said, “Much need exists back home in Jamaica and it is the intent of the Jamaican Cultural Connection to render support to various programs whereby those in need will positively benefit.”

The first meeting will be on Sunday, January 30, 2011 from 5:00pm – 6:30pm in the Conference Room of Life Worth Living Pharmacy, located at 6488 Currin Drive , Orlando , Fl. 32835. Meetings will be held the last Sunday of every month.
