CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank has once again demonstrated its commitment to the communities in which it operates through a t recent donation to the ‘Saving Brains’ Program which is being implemented by the Windward Islands Research and Education Foundation (WINDREF) and the Roving Caregiver Program.
The initiative will introduce a research-based Conscious Discipline Program to parents of young children in Grenada.
The aim of the project is to promote child-parent attachment, whilst teaching skills which seek to maximise the children’s potential through positive brain development, so that they contribute positively to their communities in the future.
Manager Retail Banking, Billy DeRoche, presented the donation to Stephanie Holmes who accepted on behalf of the program.
Country Manager of CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank, Nigel Ollivierre, said “education and the education of our youth in particular, has always been a passionate interest for the bank”.
“The introduction of the Conscious Discipline Program is an interesting project, which presents new ways of stimulating learning in young children. We are looking forward to seeing the positive results from this program and the role it plays in influencing the development of the children and parents who will benefit from the resources made available to them via this initiative”, he remarked.
The Saving Brains Program will provide classes to parents with their infants weekly in each parish and will continue through to July 2016.
