Jamaica Teas Limited is committed to engaging in and supporting programmes aimed at assisting Jamaica in becoming the place of choice to live, raise families and do business. This, according to CEO John Mahfood, in commenting on the company’s recently launched Dream Initiative, a project which advocates Crime and Violence Prevention, Sports and Education, and Youth Empowerment among other tenets of social order and good citizenry.

The Dream Initiative was fittingly  launched in the rural farming community of Slipe, in South Western St. Elizabeth  on Labour Day, May 23, 2017, a national holiday which seeks to foster civic pride as well as community outreach in areas of need.

Members of the Jamaican Teas ‘Dream Team’ along with a group of volunteers worked tirelessly on a number of refurbishing activities at the Slipe Leased Primary School aimed at  infrastructural work and improving the learning environment of the students.

Jamaican Teas ‘Dream Team’ along with a group of volunteers erected walls to demarcate classrooms, replaced old chalkboards with new whiteboards and painted both the interior and exterior walls of the Slipe Leased Primary School in St. Elizabeth, on Labour Day, May 23, 2017.

Group Marketing Manager of Jamaican Teas Limited, Charles Barrett, speaks on camera about the
company’s Dream Initiative, launched recently, to support key developmental projects geared at Crime and
Violence Prevention, Education, and Human Rights.

Jamaican Teas Limited is committed to practicing good Corporate Citizenship through Community Outreach and safe environmental practices. The Dream Initiative is the company’s latest outreach project.

Barrett says that the Slipe Leased Primary was selected based on critical needs and its designation as a remote rural school with very little resources. He said that Jamaican Teas is cognizant of its corporate social responsibility, and importantly, support of rural development. “Our success as a company is as a result of the support we get from our consumers, and hence it is quite fitting that as we prosper, communities too should prosper.  We will continue to play a role to Develop, Restore, Advocate, Empower & Motivate”.

The first major project under the Jamaican Teas Limited Dream Initiative focused on education and saw the company investing generously in infrastructural work aimed at improving the learning environment at the Slipe Leased Primary School located in St. Elizabeth.
