A community of hope …
West Kingston is one of Jamaica’s most notorious inner cities; known for its gang leaders, violence and poverty.
Fusion Jamaica has been working with children and young people in West Kingston since 1999, and has seen remarkable stories of hope. Communities have come together peacefully to end an outbreak of violence, children have learned different ways to resolve conflict rather than just fighting (and have even taught their parents about it), young people have grown and developed in character and in creative skill, and have had opportunities for education that they would not otherwise have had.
Funded completely through private donations, Fusion Jamaica is a volunteer-based community that sees West Kingston and Jamaica through the eyes of hope, and is working to see this hope have an impact on the lives of young people in this community and across Jamaica.
