Learn About The Barita Foundation
The Barita Foundation has always had youth development at its heart. The Foundation began to take shape shortly after the Friends of St. Martin de Porres started an intervention programme at the St. Martin de Porres Primary School in Gordon Town.
Finding sustainable ways to strengthen and support the school body was a hallmark of their efforts. When the Barita Education Foundation assumed responsibility for the programme in 2004, it built its platforms on the same ideals: young people deserved every opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
As academic requirements have evolved, so have the Foundation’s strategies. Beginning with our Mentoring and Monitoring programmes, which saw them having an active presence in schools with teacher support, intervention programmes and school visits, the Barita Education Foundation, now known as the Barita Foundation, has expanded into educational spaces in the digital world and beyond.
Now our mission to engage and empower youth means creating programmes that support them across our key strategic pillars such as Entrepreneurship, Health and Wellbeing alongside our evolving Education and Youth Development initiatives.
We want to help foster generations of young people who are equipped with the knowledge and opportunities that lead to financial confidence, wellness and the capacity to shape their futures.
We’re proud to partner with those who share our vision for Jamaica’s youth.
