Our Work


Merge the earth, merge the energy

I know it is sometimes hard to see how organizations influence a community via social media but the individuals within this community can speak for the dexterity of social inclusion as relations continue to build within it. Being a part of this community is the only way to truly understand the impact the Jahmeyka Project has once they are a part of your life.

Program Development, Fundraising & supply

Throughout the year, The Jahmeyka Project accepts in-kind donations to enhance the mission of local partner agencies by way of small grants and necessities. We welcome agencies to partner with us on an going basis so we can continue to strengthen our community connections and impact as many lives as possible.

Academic Publications

Jahmekya Project founder, Dr. Leslie Yaffa, has been repeatedly published in academic journals and publications relating to Jamaican social service for over 20 years. The Jahmeyka Project is committed to furthering evidence-based research in the field of international social work.

Onsite workshops with local partners

We are committed to an even exchange of ideas and collaboration and emphasize the importance of bringing fellow certified professionals with us to contribute meaningfully to the work we do.
