Whereas The Negril Enhancement Foundation (NEF) founded in 2006, incorporated in 2009, has been undertaking the task to increase arrivals and boost occupancy by bringing in an additional 20,000 visitors to Negril annually. This will be achieved using brand name One Love Drive, empowering the people and the MSMES of Western Jamaica but in particular Negril. The Foundation plans to do so by partnership and collaboration with stakeholders, institutions, companies and individuals who are loyal to our cause. We have been using Special Events, Education and Training, Marketing, Community Strengthening, sustainable product development and Collaborations in our efforts to pursue our goals of creating the number one cultural mecca in the Caribbean on the One Love Drive (Formerly West End Road).
