The Canadian Jewellers Association (CJA) has pulled out its chequebook in support of an education fund being developed by the World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO) in co-operation with the United Nations (UN).
The CIBJO Education Fund promotes projects designed to provide sustainable economic and social development in communities touched by the jewellery industry. It was created in November 2007 at UN’s offices in Geneva, Switzerland.
CJA chairman Morris Robinson presented the donation to CIBJO president Dr. Gaetano Cavalieri earlier this month.
“The Canadian Jewellers Association has once again demonstrated its sense of commitment to our industry and to the communities in which we operate,” Cavalieri said.
