Blue Mountains are spectacular, verdant and beautiful. They are surrounded by
flowering trees and rushing streams. The Jamaican way is easy and fun-loving, a
visitor can expect to become swept up in the natural rhythm of work and lively
conversation but that is not the whole story. Hurricanes and tropical storms have
destroyed a great deal of the Blue Mountains' infrastructure over the years.
Our teams have worked on long-term development projects that help to stabilize
this impoverished community.
Volunteers has worked with local people on many projects such as: building
footbridges, painting classrooms and community centers, and occasionally
providing outreach to home-bound
seniors. We need you to help us continue their vision of self-reliance.
Please work with us to put your mark on the world through a generous donation

self-reliance they seek. We need you to help us serve this economically poor,
isolated area. We work with resilient villagers who'll captivate you with their
optimistic outlook and surprising resourcefulness.
