Divi Resorts is proud to partner with local Caribbean island communities as part of their corporate Divi Cares initiative. Many of the outreach programs they support directly assist in educating children and supporting schools, focusing on healthy lifestyles, animal rescue and humane treatment, as well as green projects focusing on environmental impact on land and sea.
As part of their Divi Cares program, Divi Southwinds Beach Resort on Barbados recently worked closely with the local Mount Tabor Primary School to sponsor a class trip to the resort for the school’s grade 3 students. The students got to be “tourists for a day,” learning about the tourism industry and its importance to the Barbadian economy. After the tour, the students wrote about their experience and what they had learned.
During Mount Tabor’s recent end-of-the-school-year graduation ceremony, Divi Southwinds staff once again partnered with school officials to present top-scoring students in their graduating class with gift certificates to purchase back-to-school items as they transition from primary to secondary school. In addition to this gift, Divi Southwinds surprised these students and their parents with dinner for their families at Divi Southwinds’ pureocean restaurant in celebration of their achievements.
Divi Southwinds staff would like to recognize the top-scoring students in the class of 2016, Zachari Daniel and Aaliyah Gibson. Congratulations, Zachari and Aaliyah, on working hard and your achievement!
“We’re proud to provide these Mount Tabor’s students with educational and experiential opportunities through our Divi Cares program,” says Linda Kirton, Human Resources Manager and Training Officer for Divi Southwinds, “and we look forward to working closely with Mount Tabor Primary School throughout their upcoming academic year.”
