The Blue Mountain Project partners with rural farming communities in Jamaica's Blue Mountains to improve health, education and the economy.
The Blue Mountain Project (BMP) is a grassroots, non-profit, volunteer organization that has been working for 11 years in the rural villages of the Blue Mountains of Jamaica. By living and working directly with the communities we serve, we identify key areas of needed development and facilitate sustainable solutions. Our priority program areas of improving health, education and the economy were determined in consultation with our communities and by a belief in a holistic approach to sustainable community development.
The villages where the BMP works are the most isolated communities in the poorest parish of Jamaica, St. Thomas. Our communities are located towards the peak of Jamaica's Blue Mountains and the majority of roads are dirt roads at incredible inclines and transportation in and out of the mountains remains a serious barrier to economic, educational and health resources.
The BMP is governed by an international Board of Directors and is staffed by a Team of employees and volunteers. Working with local and international volunteers, we make the most of every resource and donation to effect lasting, productive change.
In 2015 the Blue Mountains of became the first UNESCO World Heritage site in Jamaica. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization seeks to encourage the identification, protection, and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity. Join us as a volunteer in our Service Learning Program, Ambassador Program or the Field Service Program and learn why the Blue Mountains are both culturally and ecologically of value to the entire world. Come as you are, leave inspired!
