Entrepreneurship Portfolio | Digicel Jamaica Foundation

Community Development

The Community Development portfolio focuses on the creation of social value in a self-sustained way.

In full support of Jamaica’s Vision 2030 and Digicel Foundation’s mission of building communities and community spirit, the portfolio provides small grants to community organisations. These grants help organisations in both rural and urban communities become sustainable enterprises by supporting project and capacity development.

The portfolio supports projects utilising innovative approaches to solving local development challenges and new ways to increase uptake of existing proven solutions.
