Our partnership with the Eye on Jamaica Project is a powerful example of the extraordinary work already being done among Jamaican and Caribbean communities across the region.”
Ronald Thomas, President and CEO, Eye on Jamaica Project adds, “We are focused and wholly committed to empowering those who desire to make Jamaica a better place. Our mission is to bring awareness and create response initiatives to the poverty and other socio-economic conditions affecting Jamaica.”
