Project Description

Jamaican Maroon communities—settlements established by formerly enslaved Africans—face low incomes, high unemployment, and increasing rural-urban migration that threatens their livelihoods and unique culture. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity and promote economic inclusion among historically excluded groups. Our grantee partner, Charles Town Maroon Council (CTMC), is increasing incomes of more than 100 community members by upgrading key cultural and ecotourism sites, expanding tourism offerings, and improving marketing and management of tourism activities.
