RAPAPORT… The Canadian Jewellers Association (CJA) pledged $10,000 to the new education fund set up by the World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO) in cooperation with the United Nations.

CJA chairman Morris Robinson told CIBJO president Gaetano Cavalieri that the donation was an expression of its “strong belief in the principles of corporate responsibility and in the ideal that the jewelry industry can act as a positive force in disadvantaged regions of the world.”

The CIBJO Education Fund was created in November 2007 as a means to promote projects in which the jewelry industry serves as a facilitator for sustainable economic and social development.
