About ONE53

About ONE53

ONE53, Inc is a Nashville based 501c3 organization that provides an education to individuals in Jamaica, equipping them with the skills needed to obtain meaningful employment or start a successful business. For those seeking to launch an entrepreneurial endeavor, ONE53 will fund their startup (through a micro loan) and provide office space to help incubate the business.

The organization focuses solely on individuals in the St Thomas parish — presently the poorest parish in Jamaica, with the lowest levels of economic activity on the island.

ONE53 was born out of an effort to fill the gap that has hampered the success of Jamaicans in the St Thomas parish — the lack of an education and the lack of employment opportunities. Our goal is to help those who need it the most, while reflecting the Love of the Lord to them through our ongoing efforts.
