About The Programme
N.C.B. Foundation is committed to helping our nation as we navigate these unprecedented times together. In 2019, J$25M in grants were provided for Jamaicans who were unemployed due to a downturn in certain key job sectors, where they were given an opportunity to upskill or reskill to improve their economic situation. Due to the positive impact of the programme, further support will be extended in 2021 with implementing partners, Internet Income Jamaica and iCreate Institute Limited to enable more Jamaicans to level up.
These grants for short-term online courses allow us to stay true to our roots and core focus on education and our push towards enhancing digital literacy and adoption. At the same time, it creates a pathway for unemployed persons to resume earning income to support themselves and their families. This is critical as our attention turns to jump-starting the economy and minimizing increases in poverty.
