Jalawelo designs programs to serve individuals living in high-risk communities in Jamaica and promotes the development of social enterprises to help provide them with training and income-generating opportunities.


Community Development

Communities change when residents come together to solve problems that matter to them.  We come alongside residents and other stakeholders in challenging communities to help identify and implement new solutions and approaches to old and stubborn problems.

  • Our focus is on solutions that will have a sustainable impact on people's lives.
  • We work with organizations  and individuals who are change makers.   
  • We use modern technologies in the design and implementation of programs and new initiatives. 
  • We help community-based organizations in high-risk communities increase their capacity to accomplish their mission.  
We have a love for God and for others which leads us to help communities across Jamaica. We do this by creating community development programs and helping other programs that already exist. We work with others to give Jamaicans economic, social, and spiritual help.
