The session was held with the men of the Eastwood Gardens community in St. Andrew, which was one of the six winners of the D&G Foundation ‘6 for 60’ promotion in 2022, that gifted each community with $1 million to pursue projects already underway.

The best advice often comes from the people who have walked in your shoes and understand the circumstances influencing your feelings and decisions.

Realising this, Dragon Stout recently hosted another one of its ‘Dragon Be the One Reasoning Sessions’ in the Eastwood Gardens community, inviting Humans singer, Nation Boss and renowned saxophonist, Dean Fraser to share positive reflections of their life experiences.

Nation Boss shared snippets of his life growing up as he encouraged the men of Eastwood Gardens to be resilient.

Several men turned out to the Eastwood Gardens Youth Club, listened to the presentations and asked questions relating to how they could use music to advance their lives.

The session also featured a presentation from the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JFC) on how community members could serve their country and gain other benefits.

The sentiments following the event were of appreciation and encouragement for the brand to host more such engagements.
