UWI seeks online contributions


    The University of the West Indies is seeking online contributions to strengthen and sustain the regional institution.

    In a media release, it says this is part of its annual Global Giving programme which aims to connect with alumni, parents, friends, well-wishers and partners, inviting them to give contributions.

    UWI says the 2019 campaign kicks off today and parallels a larger capital initiative which will culminate with its 75th anniversary celebrations in 2023.

    The programme was launched in 2016 and is endorsed by several influential regional patrons including former Prime Minister of Barbados, Owen Arthur and former President of T&T, Anthony Thomas Aquinas Carmona.
