Project Description

Inner-city youth in Kingston, Jamaica, face high levels of poverty, violence, and homicide, yet services for young people are disjointed and uncoordinated. At the IAF, we support community-led approaches to enhancing peace and security for young people in Jamaica. Our grantee partner, Fight for Peace International (FFPI), provides training and technical assistance to eight community-based organizations in Kingston’s inner city, strengthening their capacity to develop youth leaders, deliver violence prevention programming to young people, especially young women and girls, and coordinate programming.
