SPW Trainees Program to benefit

The National Institute for Professional Advancement, NIPA, is the latest recipient of a generous donation made by Seven Seas Waters (St. Maarten).
The donation was recently made to the institution, following a request made by the school for much needed assistance.
Due to the passing of hurricane Irma in September 2017, many of the schools’ tools and resources were either damaged, stolen or destroyed, placing students in a position of disadvantage, said NIPA director Sergio Blomont.
As such, the school decided it was time to approach the local community for assistance, with an eye on acquiring new tools and resources deemed necessary in providing students with top notch skills training, he said.
These tools and resources will be particularly beneficial to the students currently enrolled in the Social Pedagogical Worker Program, which trains students to care for the elderly and the youth.
Seven Seas Water managing director Franklyn Richards recently visited the institute to present a cheque to the school and reiterated the company’s ongoing commitment to assist, whenever possible, to the academic and social development of St. Maarten’s youth.
He said that the company strives to give content to its role of good corporate citizen and expressed the hope that the Seven Seas Water donation would significantly help NIPA in realizing its objectives.
