Conyers Dill & Pearman has
partnered with the Cayman Islands Youth Development Consortium to sponsor a
child in the after-school programme.
The law firm, which is involved in
a number of local charities, educational programmes and other worthwhile causes
through the Conyers Community Programme, will cover the fee for one child for
the duration of this year’s programme.
The programme is aimed at Year 6
students in preparation for their transition to secondary school. It is
designed to develop the students’ self-esteem and offer academic enrichment.
“The CIYDC programme provides
opportunities for our children in the Cayman Islands to participate in a
programme, which not only encourages growth and development but is also
enjoyable, and we are proud to be of assistance,” said Katherine McLaughlin,
children and education liaison officer of Conyers’ Cayman Islands office.
On behalf of the CIYDC, Sylvia
Wilks said: “We are grateful for this contribution and to firms like Conyers
Dill & Pearman who value the importance of youth mentorship programmes in
the Cayman Islands.”
