St. Maarten – As it gets ready to attend the 36th Biennial Conference of the Caribbean Union of Teachers Union in Georgetown, Guyana; the Windward Islands Teachers Union is seeking sponsorship from the private sector. Thus far, the Indian Merchants Association (IMA) has stepped forward to lend the union a hand in order to offset expenses for the conference in the South American country. On Friday, the IMA in a simple ceremony handed over a monetary contribution which Witu President Claire Elshot said would allow at least two members of Witu to attend the conference.

St. Maarten will join delegates from the 26 member strong regional association to discuss issues affecting teachers, the International Labor Organization regulations and the status of women across the region. The conference is expected to be held from August 5 to August.
Elshot is appealing to the public to lend whatever support it can to a worthy cause. She said that sponsorship letters have already been sent out to various businesses.
The IMA said that it was pleased to be associated with the union which is always on the forefront, in an exemplary manner, in support of development issues.
