ANSA McAL has partnered with WIZDOMCRM Caribbean, a global virtual learning company, to
sponsor students for Cycle 7 of their Sustainable Stock Market Game (SSMG). This collaboration demonstrates ANSA McAL’s commitment to our purpose “Inspiring Better Choices for a Better World,” and our continued investment as a progressive leader in youth development in Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago and throughout the Caribbean.

As the only cross-border sponsor in Cycle 7, five hundred students, equally shared between Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago, are beneficiaries of the sponsorship investment for the inter-regional competition and human capital framework in both countries.

The SSMG Regional Premier League is a cricket-inspired competition between Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago fostering Caricom Capital Market Awareness and Education.

We support this initiative aimed at strengthening human capital and ensuring quality education at the secondary level in both Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago.

This aligns perfectly with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal Number 4’s commitment to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong opportunities for all”.

Also speaking at the launch, Charielle Plowden, Country Manager, WIZDOMCRM said the company strongly believed in the transformative power of education through gamification learning and artificial intelligence (AI), to unlock the full potential of students and fostering friendly competition across borders. “We extend our gratitude to all corporate stakeholders and sponsors who have aligned with this initiative, leveraging AI for 21 st century education”.

The ANSA McAL Group has been consistent in its commitment to supporting young people through education and other youth empowerment programs.

The objective of the One Yard initiative was to facilitate access to remote learning for children
throughout the Caribbean, which was disrupted during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Headquartered in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, the ANSA McAL Group is a publicly traded diversified company with seventy-four companies spanning eight sectors and operating in over eight territories. It offers its world-renowned brands, products, and services in over 30 countries across the world.
