NCL Introduces First School Built With Proceeds From ‘Hope Starts Here’ Hurricane Relief Campaign
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. has announced the opening of Ivan Dawson Primary School, the first school to be constructed as a result of the company’s ‘Hope Starts Here’ hurricane relief campaign.
Together with All Hearts and Hands – Smart Response, the company raised over $2.5 million dollars to deliver early relief response and rebuild safe, resilient schools in the Caribbean communities impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. A portion of the proceeds was used to build the primary school on Tortola, British Virgin Islands. On 5OCT, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings officials attended the grand opening celebration of the school, which will open its doors to students on 31OCT.
“We are incredibly proud to celebrate the opening of this first school in partnership with All Hearts and Hands – Smart Response, which is a direct outcome of our Hope Starts Here hurricane relief campaign,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. “We are immensely grateful for all those who have contributed to the construction of the Ivan Dawson Primary School and who have helped restore hope to families in the community.”
