Our Focus in the Region
and the Caribbean
We partner with local organizations to train and provide vulnerable communities with job readiness tools and hands-on skills to help them become self-sufficient. Through strategic collaboration with public and private sectors, our projects help people succeed and inspire communities to thrive.
Check out our success stories.
“My name is Odell Marsh. I am 25 years old and the eldest of six children. I grew up in a single parent home in the rough community of Jones Town also known as ‘Jungle’. This is not an easy community to survive in, especially as a male, where the negative influences and peer pressure are everywhere”.
Odell is a DIA participant at the Urban Innovation Lab, where he takes courses on business models and innovation. “My project focuses on capturing the true essence of the Jamaican culture through a Patois Language App. The language app allows the user to translate English language to Patois. With the help of DIA, I have been able to create and test this app. I know innovation is the next big thing and DIA gives me hope to pursue it”.
