Our goal is to give 50 families the gift of clean water this year.

Only $750 USD builds a filtered, mosquito-proof, rainwater catchment system with a 650-gallon storage tank for one family, plus provides better-than-average pay for those who will be hired to install it. This doubles your dollar’s impact, by providing CLEAN WATER and EQUITABLE JOB OPPORTUNITIES.

Whether you donate $5, $75 or $750, all gifts are used to make a positive impact in the lives of those with whom we partner.

To become part of our sustainer community, select “make this a monthly donation” before completing your donation.

MORE ways TO partner:

Have a bit of wanderlust? Whether you are a solo traveler or want to create a memorable experience for your small group, you’ll experience the culture of rural Jamaica AND provide jobs in the hospitality and tourism sector as part of our Sustainable Traveler program. You can add the option to participate in a service project, or simply relax and explore the area with local guides (or a bit of both!). Each trip is bespoke to you/your group’s travel goals and budget. Contact us to start the conversation about your next trip!


Use Amazon? When you select Jah Works, Inc. as your charity of choice through the AmazonSmile program, a portion of your Amazon purchases is donated back to us.

Looking for more? On occasion, we collect new school supplies, solar/hand crank lights, non-expired medical supplies (i.e. band-aids, gauze, aspirin), new or gently used summer clothing or shoes and new mother/baby supplies to donate to schools, women’s clinics and other organizations doing good within our destination communities. Contact us to arrange a donation of basic goods.

Please consult with your tax advisor for specific information on claiming charitable giving tax deductions.

  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.
