“Partnership with a mission”
Our Directors have partnered with various entities in giving back to the community. We think it’s important that we use our skills, knowledge and resources to make our communities better places to live and work. We also have the responsibilities as citizens: to our environment; to the health and safety of our customers, employees, and the general public; to engage with our stakeholders; and to the education of future generations. This means doing business in a responsible manner, one that dynamically takes into account those who affect and are affected by our activities. This is why we’re in this business; we know it makes a difference.
At Glamour, it is in our continued commitment to give back to the community, we believe that we should not only aim to be the best DMC, but to make a difference to the people and places in our surroundings. Our non-profit arm was developed on that premise. Dedicated to giving back to our local community, “Partnership with a mission” has made a significant impact by providing a link between persons in need and groups wishing to make a meaningful contribution in the Caribbean. As such, we have partnered with various entities which give us and our clients the opportunity to give back to the local community. Our goal is to assist meetings and incentives groups who want to say thank you in this manner, or who simply want to expand their generosity beyond their own communities. Some of our more popular “Partnership with a mission” programmes include:
- School Sanitation and building Projects- rebuilding a playground in rural Jamaica...
- Education and Social Outreach- Donating School supplies to a needy institution…
- Santa for any Season- refurbishing a children’s home…

Samples of Other CSR Programmes;
1.Housing – One/Two Bedroom Unit
Through our local partner we will arrange for a house to be donated to a needy family. Throughout Jamaica, poor families live in shacks made from scraps of metal, plastic or even cardboard, with dirt floors that turn into mud when it rains. A sturdy new home with sanitation will provide protection and sanitation for a poverty-stricken family. The land must be available for the structure to be built. The house foundation which is made of concrete must be done 2 weeks prior. Work teams will be allowed to participate in actual house construction. Further to this project, a flowers garden or vegetable garden can be added to the activities.
2.School Sanitation Project
The sanitation program is an effort by our partners for schools that are without modern sanitary facilities. Through their efforts several schools have benefited from the replacement of pit latrines with flushable toilets. This project allows for volunteers to work alongside our partners in the construction of these facilities.
