Jamaica Housing for the Poor Program
JPAP Emergency Projects in Partnership with GO Ministries
The poverty rate in Jamaica stands at 16.5%, having increased in the past two years. The result is that a larger proportion of the population now falls below the poverty line and inequality has risen, in many instances heightening vulnerabilities of the most-at-risk populations, including women, children & young people.
Jamaicans Inspired alongside on the ground partners GO Ministries have taken up the task to rebuild one home in every parish every quarter. This project is working in conjunction with JPAP and is focused on:
- Sustainable Development
- Alleviation from Poverty
- Humanitarian Aid
- Capacity Growth
So far we have fundraised and built 5 pop up homes for severly impoverished families. The most recent build was for a family who suffered the lost of a husband and father due to murder. The deceased man was the sole provider to his wife and the 7 children that lived in a unaceptable shack.
Jamaicans Inspired UK fundraised for this project and rebuilt a house for the family. To gt involved in this project for 2019/20 please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
