The conversation surrounding the marketing and sale of authentic Jamaican-made products in the high-end tourism retail industry is taking a promising turn. The Sandals Foundation, with part funding provided by the Jamaica Business Fund, is executing a supply chain program to train and empower Jamaican handicraft businesses to upgrade the quality and market-readiness of their products.

The Sandals Foundation has long expressed a belief in the transformative effect of golf in the development of young people. Research has shown that early participation in golf builds self-esteem, discipline, concentration and etiquette which are not only crucial to excelling in the sport, but also to the personal development of children. It is against this background that the Sandals Foundation has provided a much-needed financial boost to the Grow Well Inc. to ensure the uninterrupted continuation of their after-school junior golf program.
