In 2005, Couples Resorts established the nonprofit Issa Trust Foundation. Its mission was and is to promote the wellbeing of the people of Jamaica through wide-ranging initiatives including health promotion, education and job counseling.

In collaboration with local educational and professional services, the Foundation helps families provide a safe, nurturing and permanent home for their children by supporting programs that emphasize drug education and prevention, improved reading and writing skills, school and job counseling, and overall social responsibility. Furthermore, we are proud to offer a continuum of outstanding clinical care to infants, children, adolescents and adults.

Couples Resorts welcomes our guests to join us in supporting the Foundation’s enrichment programs, either by becoming a corporate sponsor, donor or hands-on participant.

Again and again, our guests tell us their direct participation has been a phenomenal experience in giving back. With that in mind, we are excited to introduce new Friday morning excursions to the Free Hill Primary & Infant School, where you can experience true Jamaican culture and make a difference first-hand. We invite you to learn more about Jamaica’s educational system and positively impact the life of a child. This is a unique opportunity to personally deliver much-needed school supplies and other necessities to wonderful school children.

Join us Fridays, 9:30 am to noon. The $35 per person cost ($65 per couple) include a volunteer t-shirt and transportation between the resort and school. All process benefit Issa Trust Foundation’s education and pediatric program.
