Neville G. James - A Found­ing Di­rec­tor of PALS

Jamaica Gleaner - - OFC -

“Oliver Clarke re­garded PALS as a ve­hi­cle for so­cial trans­for­ma­tion. He was con­vinced that young peo­ple could be steered away from the vi­o­lence and con­flict that are so much a part of our so­ci­ety. He was prodi­gious in his ef­forts to raise money for PALS and gave gen­er­ously of his own re­sources to main­tain the or­gan­i­sa­tion. ”Ja­maica is still a long way from re­duc­ing the lev­els of con­flict and vi­o­lence that make for a sta­ble so­ci­ety, but we can take some com­fort from the fact that but for his launch­ing of PALS and his ef­forts to sus­tain it over 25 years,the sit­u­a­tion could have been much worse.”
