The Friends of Trelawny Association (FOTA) was formally established and incorporated in 2001in the State of New York, USA as a tax-exempt, not-for-profit voluntary, charitable organization.
It consists mainly of citizens and friends of the Trelawny Jamaican Diaspora. The organization is based in New York City and coordinates the Annual Trelawny Reunion Week in New York.
FOTA believes in working together to make a positive difference in our community at home and abroad.
For the past 34 years, founding members have organized the annual memorial weekend Trelawny Reunion Celebrations and other fundraising events in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan areas, which serve to generate revenues, donations, and resources for our organization. The organization consists of approximately 80 dues- paying members and volunteers all over the world, all of whom have a deep desire to see improvements in the parish of Trelawny.
FOTA is independent of any governmental/political ideology or religious affiliation. Its work is guided by the common desire of its members and supporters to find ways of contributing to the development of the people of Trelawny, as well as to find practical solutions to social and economic problems of the parish, in the spirit of generosity and respect. FOTA promotes an unselfish commitment to ‘STAY CONNECTED’ to our culture and our heritage.
