The Ministry of National Security’s flagship social intervention initiative, the Citizen Security and Justice Programme was recently expanded from 39 to 50 communities.
This was made possible thanks to an injection of over a billion dollars in grant funding, to be chanelled through the UK Department for International Development, DFID.
The expansion means over 7000 more persons will benefit from CSJP.
The Ministry of National Security through the Citizen, Security and Justice Programme (CSJP) has partnered with the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) to engage 91 youngsters 20 to 29 years old, in intensive training over a 12-month period under a Youth Empowerment Training Programme.
On this edition of CSJP in 5, the Olympic Gardens community in Kingston hosts black history month celebrations. The Olympic Gardens Black History Month Celebration started in 2009. It aims to raise awareness of our culture and history while fostering unity among community members.
