Young women growing up in the often volatile area of Allman Town in Kingston, Jamaica face many different challenges and as a result have very limited opportunities.
The Allman Town Police Youth Club was restarted 12 years ago, and Christina has been integral in developing the community group in recent years. The Youth club puts on bingos, fish fries, car washes and boat rides for young adults living in this deprived area. The club also supports youngsters through a
homework centre and by organising community sporting events for all age groups – all of which are designed to empower the young adults of this community.
Goals and objectives
Christina is dedicated to making a positive difference through the Allman Town Young Adults Club and aims to expand the project by introducing internet access,
which will help the students to further their education.
