The sponsorship, which was made available through the Richard and Diana Stewart Foundation, will go towards the PSOJ’s YUTE programme. In making the donation, the Stewart’s directors highlighted their continued corporate commitment to education and increased employment opportunities through this PSOJ’s two-year programme with its focus on tackling some of the root causes of youth unemployment and violence in inner cities. “Our parents, Diana and Richard Stewart, inculcated in us the need to give back to Jamaica and we are happy to step up by way of this cash donation as well as a commitment to mentorship and volunteerism. We are rolling out a programme to our entire staff in an effort to increase the number of mentors and volunteers. We strongly encourage other companies and individuals to participate in this well-needed initiative” the Stewart’s directors urged.
