HAMILTON, Bermuda (PRWEB) May 17, 2018
International hair care company MONAT Global stopped by the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club on Tuesday, May 15th for a mindfulness and yoga experience hosted by students from the Bermuda Center for Creative Learning. MONAT will have members of their senior staff alongside their top market partners in person to show their support for both educators and students. As per the MONAT Gratitude initiative, various educational supplies and amenities were donated including sponsorship of an Interactive Writing Station for the BCCL.
The Bermuda Center for Creative Learning was established to provide a personalized learning environment for each student. BCCL brings a desk-free environment with alternative seating options and a low student to-teacher ratio. Representatives for MONAT included various senior staff members alongside top-level market partners, all of whom stopped by Hamilton as part of their Passport: Bermuda 2018 incentive cruise touring the region.
Included within the Interactive Writing Station are various interactive features designed to both empower teachers and help students overcome barriers to learning such as language differences, cultural disparities, communicative issues, as well as mental and physical disabilities. “One of our biggest Dreams is to be able to keep, and grow, the desire we have of bringing positivity wherever we are and wherever we go,” said Luisaylen Urdaneta, Director of Global Recognition and Philanthropy at MONAT Global. "MONAT Gratitude is the representation of our culture as a company, and I am extremely proud to be able to show our gratitude to the crew members of Royal Caribbean, and to the Bermuda community while supporting an organization that focus on children and education, two of the main areas that we strive to impact in a positive way. This is something we couldn’t do without the support of our Market Partners, they are the ones creating the possibilities to make a difference in the world.”
Prior to the application process, students have been assessed and diagnosed with learning differences including, but not limited to, dyslexia, auditory processing disorder, ADHD, and other language-based disorders. By incorporating a learning style that is community-based alongside the current and best practices in special education, BCCL provides an environment where students can learn at their own skill level.

About Bermuda Centre for Creative Learning
The Bermuda Centre for Creative Learning Foundation (“BCLF”) is the charitable counterpart to the Bermuda Center for Creative Learning, (“BCCL” or “the school”) founded in 2015. It is registered as a private school by Bermuda Ministry of Education and was created to provide an individualized learning environment for children with diagnosed learning disabilities between the ages of 7-18. Our students have been diagnosed with dyslexia, auditory processing, ADHD and other language-based disabilities. BCLF exists to provide financial aid for tuition for children who otherwise would not be able to afford to attend the school. Whilst there is a dotted line relationship between both organizations, the foundation is a separate organization with its own governance, board and management team.
About MONAT Gratitude
MONAT Gratitude has been an integral piece of the MONAT Global Company Culture since 2014. Throughout the years, MONAT Gratitude has evolved from what originally started as a series of local volunteer initiatives into a movement across the world embraced by both corporate team members and Market Partners. The values of gratitude and giving back have always been a high priority for Chairman Sr. Luis Urdaneta and the Urdaneta family. MONAT Gratitude focuses on three specific areas of need: Education, Children/Youth, and Families. Within these three pillars, MONAT Gratitude is focused on decreasing the high school dropout rate, stabilizing families experiencing times of crisis or extreme poverty, and supporting organizations that help parents to provide safe and supportive homes, as well as therapeutic services, to their children.
