Conyers proudly donates US$10,000 to Literacy is for Everyone (“LIFE”) for the fifth consecutive year. LIFE is an independent charitable organisation that was founded in June 2012. Its mission is to improve the quality of life for residents of the Cayman Islands, by providing supplementary literacy programmes and initiatives for children and adults, in turn helping to raise the level of education in the public school system.
LIFE’s network of volunteers run several programmes and initiatives throughout the year. Programmes include paired reading sessions, literacy workshops and computer based learning. Initiatives focus on community engagement through literacy-related events and workshops to promote learning literacy skills at home.
Fraser Hughes, a Conyers’ litigation Partner, commented: “We are delighted to support local organisations such as LIFE. It is fundamental to raise awareness about the importance of literacy skills and to provide the necessary resources to people so that they can have a better level of education. We’re proud to have been a sponsor of this project from the beginning and to have seen it grow”.
