Did you know…

More Assistance for Steps-to-Work Participants…that Steps-to-Work, a social protection program implemented by the Government of Jamaica has already provided over 4,000 persons with training in entrepreneurial and job readiness skills to become self-reliant? The project, funded and supported by the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank, assists working-age adults in poor households to seek and retain employment thus reducing their dependence on state assistance and strengthening the fight against inter-generational transmission of poverty.

V Summit of the Americas, Trinidad and Tobago:

“We instruct our Ministers...to initiate or strengthen the review of national social protection, inclusion and poverty eradication programmes...We call on the OAS, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and other relevant regional and subregional development and financial institutions to support these efforts within the scope of their mandates.”
