(CNS Local Life): Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands (BBBS), a non-profit organisation that provides mentoring to young people, has received a $5,000 donation from law firm Ogier. BBBS is part of a global charity that provides children and young adults facing adversity with strong, professionally supported one-to-one mentorships to help them in their school, home and professional lives.

The charity centres its approach around the education and development of children who are facing problems in their school or home life, which is in line with Ogier’s global community focus on education, stated a press release from the law firm.

Ogier is already connected with the charity through associate Oliver Goodwin, who is currently a board member. Other Ogier staff will also be giving their time to the charity throughout the year to develop a meaningful partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, said the press release.

Partner Giorgio Subiotto said of the firm’s donation, “I’m delighted that Ogier is supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters’ valuable work. Mentorship has a powerful and positive impact on many young people’s lives in Cayman, developing skills that will help young people throughout their adult lives.

“From helping children to stay in school and building up their self-esteem and confidence to simply being there to listen, mentors are not only a positive role model for at-risk young people, they are also a trusted friend.”
