UCCI AND CAYMAN WATER COMPANY LTD FORGE A POWERFUL PARTNERSHIP TO EMPOWER YOUNG CAYMANIANS

The University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) is thrilled to announce a partnership with Cayman Water Company Ltd (CWC), aimed at enhancing the educational prospects and career opportunities for Caymanian students.

CWC has pledged an investment of $23,920 which includes $5,000 per year for two years towards scholarships for Caymanian students pursuing higher education at UCCI. These scholarships will play a pivotal role in easing the financial burden on deserving students and enabling them to pursue their dreams of higher education.

In addition to the scholarships, CWC will also contribute $13,920 for the re-fit of the plumbing laboratory to provide trade tools required for industry certification. This support will enable students to access the necessary tools and resources essential for practical training and industry certifications, ensuring they are well-prepared to excel in their chosen fields.

Dr. Robert Robertson, President, and CEO of UCCI, added, “UCCI is extremely grateful for the generous contribution of CWC. This donation is an incredible show of support, and we are so thankful as it allows us to continue the expansion of programmes that are all now internationally accredited. This partnership will make a huge impact on the mission of the UCCI and the wider Cayman community.”

In response to the partnership, Ramjeet Jerrybandan, Chief Operating Officer of Consolidated Water, expressed his company’s commitment to the Cayman Islands community, saying, “Cayman Water Company is proud to support the University College of the Cayman Islands in its mission to provide high-quality education and career opportunities for Caymanian students. We believe in the power of education to transform lives, and we are excited to be a part of this important initiative. Together, we can make a meaningful impact on the future of Caymanian talent and industry.”

CWC has a long-standing commitment to investing in the local community and nurturing the talents of Caymanian youth. This partnership is a testament to their dedication to the development and growth of Caymanian students and the industries they aspire to join.

Through this collaboration, UCCI and CWC are seting an inspiring example of corporate social responsibility and education-industry synergy. Together, they aim to empower Caymanian students with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities needed to excel in their chosen careers, ultimately contributing to the overall growth and prosperity of the Cayman Islands.
