“Good Corporate Citizenship is a critical element of Digicel’s Company Charter”
We believe that educational reform must involve whole communities that are committed to development and growth. This involves supporting community members, leaders and employees alike to create change in their communities.
We are particularly interested in Community programmes which:
- Embrace and reflect the educational, social and cultural aspirations of the community
- Address vital community needs
- Encourage volunteerism and civic engagement
- Promote opportunities for marginalized groups
The Foundation has a particular focus on education.
The focus on Education arises from a fundamental need across the country to increase access to quality education. Though accurate and updated statistics are unavailable at a national scale, Haiti has, by far, the lowest enrollment, completion, and literacy (47%) rates of any country in the Western Hemisphere.
Sustainability of the project is of the utmost importance to the Foundation prior to taking on new projects as we seek to assist communities towards self sufficiency as opposed to dependence on continued assistance.
