The Jeffrey Town Model for Community Development

Ivy Veronica Gordon

Abstract


Abstract:

The Jeffrey Town model for community development has been effectively applied to the rural community of Jeffrey Town in Jamaica with ICT as a key element. The farmers association is the vehicle that has driven the change.

Included is  a brief outline of the community plus highlights of the tangible and intangible components of the model. Special attention is paid to the investment in the human capital to help build capacity of all locals without exploitation so that real empowerment could begin. 

Jeffrey Town is a success story validating the modern development assistance programmes whereby communities are empowered, allowed to select their own imperatives and in this case redressing some of those difficulties with superb results.
