PRESS RELEASE – Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Insular
Areas Tony Babauta today signed a grant for $85,874 to support the
efforts of the Cuthbert Project through its new partner, the Guam
Community College (GCC). The Cuthbert Project, a non-profit
organization, is dedicated to helping build capacity and increase
opportunities for students in Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia
(FSM). The funding will support the collaborative efforts between GCC
and the Cuthbert Project, increasing the project’s outreach in Chuuk
State to provide essential developmental English language skills as
well as supplementing Chuuk’s efforts to establish the infrastructure
necessary to ensure that educational opportunities are extended to
these students.

“This collaboration between the GCC and the Cuthbert Project will
greatly benefit the students of Micronesia. The effort demonstrates
the important role non-governmental organizations can have to fill
gaps where a need exists. In the case of the Cuthbert Project, which
is spearheaded by Bill Hagen, I am truly pleased to know that Guam’s
business community has also been supportive and I encourage their
continued involvement. The Cuthbert Project ensures that vulnerable
Micronesian populations are not left behind, it builds capacity and
ensures that students are equipped with essential skills for success,”
said Babauta.

Funds will go toward the purchase of laptops, projectors, Rosetta
Stone software licenses and additional supplies. Courses offered
through the Cuthbert Project introduce students to personalized
learning games that address a comprehensive interactive curriculum.
