A new challenge has been issued.

And though it does not require a bucket of ice and water, it calls for companies to adopt a project in Barbados.

Senior manager of marketing and business development at Deloitte & Touche Renatta Mohammed has called on the other Big Four firms – KPMG, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Ernst & Young – to adopt a JCI Barbados Project.

Mohammed issued the challenge during the official launch of the JCI Barbados Mathfanatix at the Ocean Two resort.

That programme, which is geared toward helping primary school students improve in the subject of Mathematics is sponsored by Deloitte and Signia Financial Group.

Announcing that Deloitte was involved in other projects aimed at effecting positive change through meaningful contributions, and making reference to the ASL Ice Bucket Challenge, Mohammed said: “My public challenge today on behalf of Deloitte doesn’t require ice nor does it require a bucket. It is a challenge to the other Big Four firms on the island to join us in giving specifically to the JCI.”

The JCI’s vision and ambition is large and they have several objectives and projects that need financial backing. So my verbal challenge, and no ice required, is to join Signia and Deloitte in adopting a JCI project,” said Mohammed.

JCI Barbados is an organization which provides, among other things, developmental opportunities to empower young people to effect positive change across the country through a series of programmes.

JCI also instills project and financial management skills while encouraging entrepreneurship.
