Meaningful Employment

We desire that our friends and neighbors in the Highgate area would experience the powerful experience of "self determination." We provide opportunities for meaningful employment, whereby an individual can choose to participate, and can make decisions about that work as a partner.

The men and women who work with RAISE discover the power of choice, have the opportunity to grow their business and give back to their community in impactful ways.

This is an important effort in a country that has "struggled for decades with low growth, high public debt and a number of external shocks that have further weakened the economy...Jamaica [is] one of the slowest growing developing world countries in the world" (World Bank).
