We’re working hard to make a positive impact in the town of Oracabessa and this is the best place to find out what we are up to.
The Foundation was established in 1997 with the mission to serve as a catalyst for the sustainable development of Oracabessa and its environs. Today the Oracabessa Foundation is focused on making an impact in three critical areas:
More People Working: Our strategy to increase the number of people in Oracabessa who have good jobs has revolved around providing vocational training so persons can be workforce ready.
A Healthy Bay: Jamaica has some of the most depleted fish stocks of any country in the world. A Healthy Bay is an incredibly important resource for the many stakeholders in the community.
Positive, Engaged Youth: “Unattached” youth are a major problem across Jamaica. Our strategy is to create a positive environment where youth can find their first taste of success.
