Glad you stopped by the home of the Oracabessa Foundation. We're working hard to make a positive impact in the town of Oracabessa and this is the best place to find out what we are up to.
The Foundation was established in 1997 with the mission to serve as a catalyst for the sustainable development of Oracabessa and its environs.
Today the Oracabessa Foundation is focused on making an impact in three critical areas:
More People Working
A Healthy Bay
Jamaica has some of the most depleted fish stocks of any country in the world. A Healthy Bay is an incredibly important resource for the many stakeholders in the community.
Positive, Engaged Youth
“Unattached” youth are a major problem across Jamaica. Our strategy is to create a positive environment where youth can find their first taste of success.
“When I started Island Records in Jamaica over 50 years ago, it was because I was captivated by the rhythms and the storytellers of a rich and diverse culture. Having achieved some success since then, built on the foundation of that Jamaican music, I have always tried to make it a priority to give back to the people of Jamaica.”
