Literacy and quality of life

A good book can transport a reader to distant times and faraway places, no ticket required. All you need is the ability to read.

Journalism camp explores critical thinking

At times, the Cayman Islands’ changing media landscape can seem challenging to navigate with different types of news, content styles and digital platforms. To help young people better understand the evolving media landscape, seven local media houses teamed up with Camana Bay Times and Dart’s Minds Inspired programme to present the inaugural Journalism & Media Summer Camp last month.


Saving trees after Grace's passage

Tropical Storm Grace was anything but graceful toward the trees of Camana Bay.

As its nearly hurricane-force sustained winds swept across Grand Cayman, Grace left trails of destruction, damage and dismay on the flora in the community.


A female touch to construction

The second article in a four-part series about women working in construction-related jobs at Dart focuses on six females with roles in project operations, the nucleus of the Development, Delivery & Infrastructure team.

At the heart of any successful construction project, there exists a central intelligence hub loaded with data that must be managed with precision and accuracy. This hub feeds valuable intel to entire crews of people throughout the life cycle of real estate development projects, from inception to completion and beyond. At Dart, this function — which the construction industry traditionally refers to as document control — is expertly managed by nine individuals, six of whom are women thriving in a male-dominated industry. Their efforts have helped redefine the department through innovation.


Creating a safe environment for young people

Since 2017, the Teens and Young Adults Lounge — known as TAYA — run by the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre has been an after-school refuge for local youth.

The year-round programme is free for participating youth and, in addition to practical workshops and weekly support meetings, also provides daily meals. In 2021, this work is supported by a CI$25,000 Dart Grant.
