A non-profit, non-political organization committed to restoring a sense of hope, purpose and dignity through the efforts of concerned Jamaicans at home and abroad. BJF undertakes this task with a firm belief in God, that we as a nation already have within us the resources to accomplish this task. The focus is to arrest the declining social and economic conditions in Jamaica, by carefully planning and implementing a voluntarily funded development programme. In the short-term BJF aims to provide immediate assistance to education, health, skills training and sports.
The BJF was developed out of a vision and Christian concern for the social and economic development of the people of Jamaica. The general idea of this project concept was derived from the need to develop a programme which would assist in creating a positive and significant impact on the economic development and social well-being of our nation.
The underline concept of the project idea is to motivate and challenge Jamaicans and friends of Jamaica to participate in building our nation by contributing one dollar per day for an initial period of one year. The target is for one million contributors from overseas, plus Jamaicans at home who will similarly support “The Build Jamaica” concept.
