As a proactive corporate citizen, Digicel continues the long tradition of helping the community, both in terms of financial aid and volunteerism. With that in mind Digicel has launched its ‘Community Involvement Month.’
We at Digicel continue help and support the communities where we live, work and socialize and must lead by example with our initiatives.
Many projects have been identified and air marked as priority around St Lucia. The Grand Riviere Primary School library renovation, Back to School Outreach, support of the Corner Stone Humanitarian Society, support of Free Hair cutting Programme, Bexon School IT Lab refurbishment, Victoria Hospital Pediatric refurbishment, renovation of the Soufriere orphanage and support of an Adult Literacy programme will all be the focus for the next few weeks.
Last week Digicel got a jump start on three other activities that laid out a path of positivity. From around the island 15 less fortunate students received scholarships from Digicel to aid in their preparation of the new academic year. Digicel continued with repainting several pedestrian crossings and speed humps in the city circuit that were near primary schools, and further support was given to the organizers of the La Clery Summer camp which engaged many youth in positive activities.
Digicel’s Marketing Manager Kerchelle Jn Charles says, “Digicel views the community outreach programme as primarily an act of responsibility, and not merely an act of generosity. Helping someone or an organization brings out the best in the Digicel team, inspires hope, and empowers others to believe in a better future.”
Look out for the Digicel team as they roll up their sleeves and give back to the communities of St Lucia.
