Words by Zebi Williams
LargeUp is greatly inspired by the work Zebi Williams has done as the head of the Lil Raggamuffin Summer Camp. Launched eight years ago when she was just 19, the volunteer-run camp has become an exemplar for youth development, promoting arts and entrepreneurship within a small, coffee-farming community in Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, and inspiring similar programs elsewhere. Having worked closely with Zebi the last few years, we wanted to give her a regular voice on LargeUp. Raggamuffin Reasonings will be her way to keep LargeUp readers updated on this unique program, and also to inspire similar ideas into action.
