All donations and projects related to The Jamaica Inn Foundation are announced on our blog.
The Jamaica Inn Foundation helps support Debate Mate, the Oracabessa Bay Turtle Project and the "500 in 5" Fish Sanctuary Project.
Debate Mate is an international charity dedicated to improving social mobility using cost-effective, peer-to-peer debate mentoring.
Several local community schools participate and have found it to be a life-changing experience for students. Debate Mate molds students who, at the beginning of the program, cannot read or write, and by the end, are debating in competitions.
Working to monitor and protect the endangered hawksbill sea turtles, The Oracabessa Bay Turtle Project's huge success has resulted in more than 100 nests and 16,000 hatchlings being recorded yearly.
Project supervisor Mr. Mel Tennant works with our hotel to record data of nest hatchlings. Many Jamaica Inn guests have witnessed the turtle hatchlings right here on our beach.
The Jamaica Inn Foundation is working to set up a Fish Sanctuary off of our coast encompassing miles of ocean around Ocho Rios. The goal is to have 500 times more fish in the next 5 years.
