THE YOUTH EMPOWERMENT INITIATIVE
The Stone Foundation (TSF) was established to help disadvantaged youth and poor communities on the island of Jamaica. We began this endeavor, because Jamaica is a very unique country. Its population is uncharacteristically young, with a median age of 26. And, approximately 48.9% of those persons living under the poverty line are children under the age of 18. These very unique demographics, coupled with limited access to employment, training and social services, cast a long shadow on Jamaica's future - a future inextricably tied to the support, education and skill sets of its youth. Our purpose is to empower today's Jamaican youth through our collective expertise in the fields of healthcare, education and technology.
