About Us

Making the World a Better Place For All of Us

Our Story

The Jamaica Association in Switzerland (JAS), a non-profit organisation, was founded in 2005 by eight Jamaicans residing in Switzerland who wished to commemorate Bob Marley’s 60th birthday anniversary. The first Bob Marley fete, as it was called, was held on May 12 of that year with some 250 Jamaicans and friends of Jamaica in attendance.
