Jamaica

For years Jamaica has been battling with a sluggish economy coupled with low growth rates, all while struggling to combat severe poverty, especially in rural areas. Many families lack access to running water and electricity in rural areas and housing remains a critical need in both rural and urban areas. Many Kingston migrants find themselves homeless after relocating to the city to find work. Jamaica continues to experience high rates of poverty, violent crime and unemployment.
