Grant making is the focus of the work we do at the American Friends of Jamaica.
We seek to recognize and empower organizations that carry out vital programs to assist Jamaicans in need with grants that support their work to improve the lives of Jamaicans.
We do our work with community groups, NGOs, hospitals, schools and the University of the West Indies (UWI). These entities meet our criteria for measurable impact, an efficient track record and excellence.
We believe in building partnerships with knowledgeable, creative and informed institutions. Our Program Analyst in Jamaica conducts site visits, evaluates progress and submits biannual reports.
Additionally, with several major donors and the Ministry of Health and Wellness , we successfully spearheaded the reopening of Chapelton Hospital and played a pivotal role in the renovation and upgrading of May Pen Hospital's Waiting Area for the Outpatient Department.
