Charity group 100 Women in Hedge Funds has designated Big Brothers Big Sisters as its 2016 Cayman beneficiary.
According to a statement from the charity, 100 Women in Hedge Funds “aligns its yearly objectives to a global theme that rotates on an annual basis to ensure the greatest impact on the local community; for 2016, the theme is Mentoring.”
It chose Big Brothers Big Sisters because this local charity promotes its mentoring objectives by pairing adult volunteers with children in the community who could benefit most from a one-on-one mentoring relationship.
Chair of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Pilar Bush, said, “Big Brothers Big Sisters Cayman is thrilled to have been selected by 100WHF Cayman as the 2016 beneficiary of its philanthropic efforts. As the leading mentoring organization in the Cayman Islands, our vision is that all children achieve success in life.
“This partnership will allow us to significantly expand our school and community-based mentoring and raise local awareness for the measurable positive impact of mentoring.”
