Additional ways you can partner:

Through the Smile program, a portion of your Amazon purchases is sent to Jah Works. We also have an Amazon Wish List where you can select items from to send directly to us, that we will be using for upcoming programs and projects.
We collect certain items to donate to schools, women’s clinics and other organizations within our destination communities: new school supplies, non-expired medical supplies (i.e. band-aids, gauze, aspirin), new or gently used summer clothing or shoes and new mother/baby supplies. Contact us to arrange a donation of basic goods.
Whether you are a solo traveler or want to bring along your small group, you’ll not only gain a better understanding and experience the culture of the place, you’ll provide jobs in the hospitality and tourism sector, plus have the option to participate in a service project with a positive social impact.

  1. Can donations be made to Jah Works, and a notification forwarded to say a family stating it was given in honor of, or in memory of someone? And, maybe a leaflet that explains your non-profit mission?

    1. Hi Rhonda, that’s an excellent idea!

      We’d be glad to notify someone that you’ve made a gift in their honor, or in memory of their loved one. Donations can be made through PayPal via the link above, and once you’ve made the donation, simply shoot us an email at, with your donation amount, the name of the person you are honoring or memorializing, and the address you’d like us to use for the notification.

      Thanks for thinking of and supporting Jah Works!


  2. Hi, I’m an experienced architect and when I was traveling in Jamaica in 2014 I came across a house project that was pretty challenging- it was a very steep hill and they actually benefited from my help- they were stuck. I spent over a year working on the project, it was a very successful experience all around. If there’s a fit, I mean a project that is difficult/complex (locals can figure the regular stuff out) I’m interested in helping.
