Poverty in the Caribbean

The Caribbean is a world-class holiday destination. But there’s another side to life here, and it’s much less pretty.

Christian Aid works in Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, helping support the millions of people who survive in the shadows.


Teenage boys in swimming pool

In Spanishtown, Jamaica, swimming pools are usually the preserve of wealthy tourists. But Christian Aid partner Children First is helping open doors for young men from poor and marginalised backgrounds, who would otherwise find themselves shut out from mainstream society. These teenagers are taking swimming lessons as part of its Male Awareness Now programme.
