Contribution to Project STAR
Category: Community Development
Project STAR is a national Social Transformation and Renewal (STAR) project aimed at reshaping outcomes for Jamaica’s communities. The goal of Project STAR is to facilitate a national, collaborative, evidence-based approach to sustained violence prevention at the community level. STAR will develop, alongside the JCF and community and partner agencies, a range of interventions, designed to support strategies that encompass inclusive, sustained and measurable objectives which will result in safer, more resilient communities with reduced levels of violent crime. In partnership with government agencies, civil society organisations and private sector bodies, STAR will be strengthened through local involvement in the governance and oversight community framework.
The SJF has provided a contribution of JMD5 million to this initiative.
