Cayman: Sunrise Adult Training Centre Gains New Wheelchair-Accessible Bus through Generous Donation

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. January 12, 2023 – The Sunrise Adult Training Centre, the Government organisation dedicated to providing comprehensive support and training for adults with diverse abilities, is thrilled to announce the arrival of a brand-new state-of-the-art wheelchair-accessible bus, a gift that will significantly enhance the centre’s ability to serve its clients and foster inclusivity for all.

This impactful purchase was made possible through the generosity of a private donor, Vampt Motors and Toyota, whose shared commitment to corporate social responsibility and inclusivity, align seamlessly with the core values championed by the Centre.

This bus includes innovative design features to accommodate clients with mobility impairments, including those who use wheelchairs and mobility aids, and will empower the Centre to expand its outreach and support services. The newfound mobility will not only provide greater accessibility to the Centre for clients but will also enable the organisation to plan more community outings and activities, promoting a greater sense of inclusion and belonging. 

Director of Sunrise Adult Training Centre, Kimberly Voaden, shared these remarks: “We are profoundly grateful for this incredible gesture of kindness and support from our donor, as well as the expertise and assistance received from Vampt Motors, Toyota and the Department of Vehicles and Equipment Services (DVES). This wheelchair-accessible bus is more than just a means of transportation; it symbolizes a commitment to inclusivity and empowerment. With this gift, we can enhance the lives of our clients by providing them with new opportunities to engage with the community and participate in activities that promote personal growth and social integration.”

Deputy Premier and Minister of Investment, Innovation, and Social Development of the Cayman Islands, André Ebanks, also expressed his gratitude for the donation: “The collaborative endeavour between the community-focused donor, Vampt Motors, and Toyota serves as a prime illustration that underscores the transformative potential of community investments and innovations that directly contribute to social development. The positive outcomes witnessed through this donation for the Centre exemplify the tangible benefits that arise when philanthropy, corporate engagement, and governmental support align in pursuit of shared social objectives.”

The Centre extends its sincere appreciation to all of the mentioned parties for their commitment to creating a more inclusive and supportive community for all.
