Build Jamaica | Indigenous Cultures and Communities

Experience the preservation of African traditions with the indigenous Maroon community in Jamaica. This cross-cultural, multi-disciplinary experience, will allow you to work, live, and play with members of the indigenous Maroon community. Projects will include:

We have partnered with the “Charlestown Maroon Council” to create a self- sustainable campsite facility and other infrastructural developments that build upon the assets and beauty of the Charlestown, maroon’s indigenous culture, and environment. This rich cross cultural exchange creates a co-learning environment, mutual respect and understanding of the “commonality of humanity.”

This year join us as we empower the indigenous maroon community of Charlestown, Portland, Jamaica. Help us Give Forward | Build Jamaica℠ a sustainable volunteer campsite with facilitations for sports, culture, technology, renewable energy, and education training.

HELP them sustain themselves and ‘preserve their culture’ in this Global Village.
