“Deloitte Bermuda donated $20,000 to bring the Maths No Problem program, a Singapore math-training method to Bermuda. This sponsorship allowed all public primary and middle school teachers as well as the Warwick Academy teachers to participate in the training. In addition, for a second year in a row, our staff contributed volunteer hours and donated towards the Guided Math Program for Harrington Sound primary students.

As part of Deloitte’s sustained commitment towards not-for-profit organizations, a total of 104 Deloitte Bermuda staff donated 3,704 pro-bono, non-profit and community project hours’ worth $747,736 in professional services.
