We come from all walks of life. – some of us are even past recipients of the Hanover Charities Scholorship.

We come from Jamaica and overseas – brought together by our passion to help and make a difference where we can.

With the main focus of Hanover Charities being Education & Health just some of the projects our funds support annually are:

  • A weekly soup kitchen that feeds over 700 children and elderly every week
  • Nutritional Food Programmes in School’s
  • Facilities, clinics, institutions & projects that provide health care
