Peace And Prosperity Project

Background & Objectives

The negative effects of crime and violence on investment in the Jamaican economy, have long been recognized showing crime and violence mainly concentrated in 15 inner city communities during late 1990s – to early 2000. During this period such incidences started to take on national scope. It was against this background that the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) designed the Peace and ProsperityProject (PPP) . The general feel behind the project was that thereduction of crime and violence and improvement of socio economic conditions of the inner city would stabilize these areas , therebyfacilitating a marked improvement in business environment for Small,Medium and Micro Enterprise ( SMME) sectors.

Two communities were selected for the project activities namely; Grants Pen and Stand Pipe both in St Andrew , Jamaica.
