Ghetto Youths Foundation provides help and assistance across the world.
Our social impact programs provide much needed resources and opportunities to inner city communities across the globe.
The Elderly Food Program provides nourishment to more than 350 seniors each month.
Our Educational Initiatives support young people with tuition, books, backpacks, pencils and other basic tools needed to succeed.
We create Homework Centers — where kids can have a safe place in the community with access to computers and technology which otherwise would be out of reach.
Medical assistance, ranging from seniors to newborn infants, is a fundamental part of our mission — wellness programs, health fairs, childcare and family planning for teens, and regular check ups for elders – through these programs, the Foundation’s wellness initiative provides medical care to hundreds of people each year.
Trenchtown, Jamaica, where Bob Marley launched his career, where other reggae greats such as Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, Toots Hibbert, and so many more world-famous artists proudly called home, in the famous Tenement Yard… A unique and vibrant community known for producing some of the greatest artists in the world, and yet where 100% of the population still lives below the poverty line.
This is the site of some of the Ghetto Youths Foundation’s most exceptional work. Each month, the Foundation provides meals and sustenance for seniors who otherwise would have no access to regular groceries. In 2018, the Foundation will begin to secure donations to fund college scholarships for 200 young people, creating generational change for the community via a clear path to educational liberation. Also this year, the Foundation will create a free computer and homework center to support the community, as well as launching the cornerstone operations for a ground-breaking, fully subsidized non-profit grocery store.
