10 yrs ago, Dr.Morgan decided to transform the lives of hundreds of Trench Town’s citizens with career training and employment. Dr Morgan’s Agency for Inner-city Renewal (AIR) has been the oxygen that has revived a community where “young men dying and mothers crying” was an everyday occurrence. Since setting up state-of-the-art offices and conference rooms, which serve the community for their meetings as well, Dr Morgan has nearly 500 persons on his payroll who work with some of Jamaica’s leading manufacturers, in addition to scores involved in cultural and agricultural projects.
With no political or religious affiliation, Dr Morgan’s recruits and trainees come from not only Trench Town, but also Tivoli Gardens, Majesty Gardens, Payne Lands, and other communities. He believes, “there are people who want to label our inner-city folks as lazy and worthless, and they are so wrong! Our people want to earn their way and take care of their families. That is what social entrepreneurship is all about, not giving handouts but providing opportunities.”
