Debate Mate

Debate Mate is a unique international charity dedicated to improving social mobility using cost effective, peer to peer debate mentoring. By teaching debating through peer to peer mentoring, Debate Mate empowers and inspires participants and provides them with powerful role models to raise their aspirations.

Several schools in our Community participate in this program and we have found that it is a life changing experience for the students. Debate Mate commences with students who cannot read or write at the beginning of the program, and by the end, these students are debating in competitions.

Oracabessa Bay Turtle Project

This Organization works to monitor and protect critically endangered Hawksbill Sea Turtles in our environment. Due to the huge success of the project, over 100 nests and 16,000 hatchlings are now recorded each year.

Many of our guests here at Jamaica Inn have witnessed the turtle hatchling events on our beach. Mr. Mel Tennant supervises the Project and works closely with our Watersports Team headed by Ovan Coombs at the hotel to record estimated time of nest hatchlings.

White River Fisherman's Association

The Foundation is in an equal partnership with the White River Marine Association (Stakeholders and Funders) and the Jamaica Inn Foundation in operating the White River Fish Sanctuary.

The mission statement of the stakeholders involved in the setup of the sanctuary is “500 in 5” which simply means that the mission will be to have 500% more fish in 5 years. The benefits will be enormous to us all and for our future in Jamaica. This will be most beneficial for the livelihood of Fishermen and will help to restore our reef by keeping fishing limited to only certain places.

The coral reef rehabilitation project will help regenerate our beautiful reef all along the eastern coastal waters of Ocho Rios.

Mustard Seed Orphanage

The Mustard Seed Communities is a non-profit organization offering programs dedicated to the care of children with serious mental and physical disabilities. The Jamaica Inn Foundation supports this organization through annual donations and other charitable efforts.
