Mission Statement

The Jamaican Heritage Society is a mission-focused organization devoted to the promotion and development of :

  • Health and human service initiatives

  • Educational Technology - Bridging the knowledge gap between individuals and organizations who have the skillset to support those in need

  • Facilitating sustainable relationships and partnerships among the global Jamaican Diaspora.

Description

The Jamaican Heritage Society intends to enable Jamaicans to use the mobile technology available to them to access historical information, connect with skilled members of the Jamaican Diaspora, and participate in educational mentorship programs with other members of the Jamaican Diaspora.

Through all of our initiatives, the Jamaican Heritage Society engages others to actively participate in the Diaspora Movement, enhances and creates online mechanisms for increasing Diaspora involvement and will create a scalable framework for building global online communities devoted to a shared cause. ?

By creating an app that is accessible to both Jamaicans on the island and members of the Global Jamaican Diaspora, the Jamaican Heritage Society trains progressive individuals and associations in online skills by creating and sponsoring educational initiatives focused on technology. In doing so we will foster a sense of community and provide opportunities to strengthen Jamaica by strengthening its Diaspora.

The Jamaican Heritage Society will bring together a large cohort of activists from across the United States to engage in targeted workshops on coding, web development and social media as a means to raise awareness and create catalytic change in the areas of Education, Entrepreneurship and Development.

Over time with the scalable framework that JAHs builds there will be a holistic strategy to target financial literacy, self reliance and activate communities via exposure to web and technology tools.
