CELEBRATING ITS fifth anniversary, The Sandals Foundation, the official philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International (SRI), has announced a three-year premiere partnership with NBA Champion Dwyane Wade and his charitable organisation, Wade's World Foundation.

Together, the two non-profit foundations will launch programmes and initiatives to benefit youth in underserved communities in the Caribbean and Miami.

Adam Stewart, president of The Sandals Foundation and CEO of SRI, said he proudly takes this step towards fulfilling his commitment to "changing lives, shaping futures, and uplifting spirits" throughout the Caribbean. It is both Stewart's mission and passion to elevate youth development in this region. This passion is shared by NBA Champion and Team USA Olympic Gold medalist, Dwyane Wade, who founded Wade's World Foundation in 2003 to highlight the education of youth, literacy, health and fatherhood.

"We couldn't think of a more perfect partner for our foundation than Dwyane Wade," said Stewart. "His commitment to changing the game, both on and off the court, is iconic. We know that working together, we can make a real difference by implementing programmes that will have a positive effect among children and within the community."
