Proudly Supporting the Rose Town Foundation in Kingston
Gore Developments Limited (GDL) is a proud supporter of The Rose Town Foundation for The Built Environment, the new office for which officially opened in Rose Town, Kingston on Wednesday, May 16, 2012.
The Rose Town Foundation for the Built Environment is an initiative which was formed after the Prince of Wales’ visit to Jamaica in 2008, when his interest was sparked by the local craft talent.
The London-based Prince's School of Traditional Arts created both the Rose Hall Artisans Project, which serves the Rose Hall community in Montego Bay and the Rose Town Foundation, which focuses on the development of the Rose Town community in Kingston.
In late 2011 GDL committed to be a main sponsor of the Rose Hall Artisans Project, and by extension, supports the Rose Town Foundation.
The Rose Town Foundation aims to create opportunities for residents of the Rose Town community to improve the quality of their lives through active participation in development programs that enhance their built environment, socio-economic status and community health.
GDL attended the opening event along with a slew of international dignitaries such as the Prince’s Foundation International Director for Building Communities and former US Ambassador to Jamaica, Brenda Johnson, as well as partners, USAID and the Department for International Development's Governance Security Program.
GDL will continue to support the initiative's efforts in Kingston and Montego Bay, under the company's active umbrella of community development work.
