Many of us have sister-friends, biological sisters, and best friends. Yet, the bonds we create in our Sisterhood of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated stands unmatched and beyond measure. The vision of 22 women gave birth to what is now our profound connection that spans across the globe.
The commitment of our founders and the work of our leaders made space for the Jamaica Alumnae Chapter. We are thankful for our 11 chartering sorors and we commit to carry the torch forward to become an indelible force in the Caribbean.
Our work is vast, commitment unquestionable and heart for service at the center of all that we do.
We are Delta women. We are changemakers.
The Jamaica Alumnae Chapter was proud to receive the Fortitude Award given to us during the 2020 Regional Conference by the Southwest Regional Director Michelle Brown for our COVID-19 emergency donation project.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated is an organization of college educated women committed to the constructive development of its members and to public service with a primary focus on the Black community. It was founded on January 13, 1913 by 22 college women at Howard University in Washington, D.C.. These students wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need. The first public act performed by the Delta Founders involved their participation in the Women’s Suffrage March.
