Often being portrayed as an island paradise, Jamaica is well known for its tropical climate, white sandy beaches, 5 star all inclusive hotels and melodic Reggae music. That is the image that is often portrayed in tour magazines and brochures.

 

Many visitors to Jamaica have come to realize that this is not an accurate portrayal of the lifestyle of typical Jamaicans, and they yearn for an authentic Jamaican experience.

 

They want to volunteer in local communities that need help to overcome real issues. They want to learn all they can about the Jamaican culture and the people. They want to eat the same food that Jamaicans eat on a daily basis. And they want to work with a local partner to arrange a project in Jamaica that will be structured, safe, comfortable and affordable.

 

If you identify with any of the needs listed above, then Jamaica International Projects is the perfect partner for you. Still not sure you can trust us? Continue reading to find out why you should choose Jamaica International Projects.
