Company’s cash gifts for good causes

The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award and the Community Driven Development (CDD) programme have each received donations from Marsh and Guy Carpenter.

The companies gave $2,500 to each of the programmes.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is available for free but it costs an average of $400 per person each year.

The CDD started out by assisting jobless or underemployed women, but it now also helps men to build on their skills and get off financial assistance.

David Ezekiel, country corporate officer of Marsh & McLennan Companies Bermuda and chairman of Marsh's Bermuda charity committee, commended both initiatives as “two valuable organisations on the Island that seek to empower our youth and adults, respectively”.
