Axis Capital donates $15,000 to scholars development charity
International specialty insurer and reinsurer Axis Capital has made a $15,000 donation to the educational non-profit Peak Potential Bermuda, for Scholars Bermuda, a learning centre that offers tutoring support for children of all ages.
Peak Potential said it is involved in the pursuit of creating safe and healthy environments for children to thrive.
The local non-profit recently launched the learning centre Scholars Bermuda, which aims to help children to build confidence and academic skills with the tutoring support.
“At Axis, we’re committed to supporting the communities where we live and work, and as a Bermuda-based organisation, we are proud to partner with Peak Potential Bermuda in their mission to enable and inspire children to reach their full potential,” said Hillary Williams, Axis Insurance head of professional lines in Bermuda.
The organisation said: “Education is described as the bedrock of any society that wants to develop.
“Unfortunately, quality educational support has become a luxury for a good number of children due to a lack of resources — finance.
“Consequently, the team at Peak Potential Bermuda is looking to make school work easier for children in need, and help foster a lifetime love of learning with the introduction of Scholars Bermuda.
“Peak Potential Bermuda aims to work with well-meaning organisations and individuals across the globe to help achieve the goal of Scholars Bermuda.
“The non-profit recently received a $15,000 donation from Axis Capital to help students needing educational support, giving them access to academic assessments and an after-school tutoring programme.
“The team of passionate educators at Scholars Bermuda, led by Alika Smith, leverage their years of experience to create personalised plans that support the individualised learning style of every child, focusing on making lessons engaging, effective and fun.”
