Upcoming event: Entrepreneurship and the Diaspora
We cordially invite you to join with us for our exciting Zoom event on Entrepreneurship and the Diaspora, to be held on Saturday, April 24, 6 pm – 7:30 pm. This event will help answer some of your questions on entrepreneurship, even in this era of COVID19.
Even if you are not an entrepreneur, this event is also for you. Log on to hear where you can learn the latest reggae dance-moves from one of Jamaica’s best reggae dancers. Thinking about online designer fashion? How about where you can go to get fit-revitalised after a year of dining on your favourite Jamaican cuisine specialities. All this and more will be discussed, entertained as we celebrate Jamaica’s culture and entrepreneurship.

Past event: Christmas Fundraising and Zoom Telethon
The Jamaica Association in Switzerland recently had its Christmas Fundraising and Zoom Telethon on December 12, 2020. This online event, which was a wonderful time of warmth and fun with the diaspora and friends of Jamaica, was primarily aimed towards raising funds for the charity Candle in Dark: Shelters for the homeless and mentally challenged in Mandeville, Jamaica. The event, which had as MCs Jamaica’s Dervan Malcom of Power106FM and Claudette ‘CP’ Powell (formerly of Fame95FM in Jamaica), was a celebration of the beauty and culture of Jamaica through poetry, music, dance and irie vibes. A special thank you to all those who supported this event and worthy cause. One love!
Past event: Annual Independence Day Barbecue, celebrating Jamaica’s independence, held on August 9, 2020 at the lovely Vidy Wind Club in Lausanne.
