FOUNDER – EDEN MARLEY
The Garden of Eden Foundation was created by Eden Marley, granddaughter of the late Bob Marley. Eden has deep ties to the Caribbean community. As a girl, she attended elementary school in Haiti, where she lived for a time with her mother’s family.
The passion for community and philanthropy demonstrated by her grandfather, Bob, is the core of Eden’s desire to make a difference.
ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
The Garden of Eden Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our goal is to empower the young women in underserved communities by cultivating self-esteem and self-worth through education, the arts, and community development projects.
Our goal is to break the cycle of concentrated poverty in these communities by focusing on education to target issues such as teen pregnancy, domestic violence, high school dropout rates, child abuse, sexual abuse, delinquency, substance abuse, and the lack of sexual education. We believe that through these tutoring, mentoring, and empowerment programs, we can help make a lasting difference.
