Our Mission and ObjectivesMission: To use technology to help advance the development of our people, businesses and minds.
Our core objectives are:
- Connecting Caribbean People
- To give every school in the Caribbean the opportunity to grow
- To give every church in the Caribbean and Diaspora the ability to spread the gospel
- To market Caribbean products and services to the world
- Use the latest technology to sell the Caribbean as “the tourist destination”
These may be very ambitious objectives and one person will not be able to accomplish them all. What we need is a community of people to contribute. What I have done is to use my twenty years plus experience in the IT industry to create the framework for it to happen; one school, one church and one business/organization at a time, and we will get there. There are a known number of schools, churches and businesses/organization, so one day, we WILL accomplish this goal.
Our JourneyNovember 02, 2000 at the height of the Internet bubble Winston Small registered the domain JamaicanAffairs.com to connect Jamaicans in the Diaspora (living abroad – did not know of the fancy word Diaspora) and at home. This was long before the “Social Media/Network” buzz and it was visionary!! During the first year the site had over 5,000 registered users and a lot of buzz was generated. We connected Jamaicans from the top three communities: Schools, Churches and Businesses/Organizations. Over 90% of Jamaicans (and other nationalities) belong to at least one of the groups / communities:
Past students or students of an educational institution:
- Attends a religious organization
- Own or work for a business / organization
When it all got started the plan was to complete the Jamaican Network and then expand it to the rest of the Caribbean, hence the birth of Caribbean Diaspora Network (CaribbeanDiaspora.network).
