JA gets bank’s help

First Caribbean International Bank has given a helping hand to the 2005-06 Junior Achievement programme.

‘We are happy to support Junior Achievement of the Cayman Islands in their efforts to educate our young people on what is needed to be successful in the business world, First Caribbean International Bank (formerly CIBC & Barclays Bank) was one of the first sponsors of the Company Program and has been since it was started 15 years ago and we are proud of what JA has achieved in that time’ said Mr. Thomas Crawford, managing director of First Caribbean International Bank.

‘Junior Achievement is very grateful to First Caribbean for their generous donation and support of our program and I urge other companies to come forward and assist us.’

The Junior Achievement programme in the Cayman Islands was established in 1991 by the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central. Major financial support is currently provided by the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central, the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce, and major business organisations on the Island.
